A voluminous backpack for extended trips into the wild.

Put some stuff in and went for a week long walk.... Worked like a charm.

I loved this bag, up until the second time I used it. I used it on one weekend trip with a low amount of weight (no more than 25lbs). Worked great, loved the rain cover and the straps felt good. Fast forward to a week long trip to Isle Royale (50 miles). My bag weighed about 40lbs MAX, by the end, one of the seams on the outside of the pack busted and one of zipper string came off. Also, the hip padding seems inadequate. At trip's end, I had the largest bruise by far out of the group on my hips. Loved the SAC price, but got what I paid for. Would be decent as a beginner bag for weekend hikes. I will probably end up letting friends use it when introducing them to backpacking.
