So i Wanted a large capacity pack because i like to winter camp, And needed EXTRA room.I have used this pack for splitboarding winter trips. and summer backpacking. with a load of about 50-60 pounds i forget its on me sometimes! This pack moves with you! The hipbelt is Super comfy! I like to have all my stuff packed inside my pack! There is so much room in this pack that you can !Some people choose a nice light weight small pack and end up rigging things on the outside and that throws off balance, things get lost or broken! The only time i do that is in winter Avy shovel, skins etc. fits perfect in the stretchy pocket. I added (not sewn just added)some compression straps just above the sleeping bag compartment from the frame to the sleeping pad straps. so i can really tighten a load. I didnt think a perfect 4 season pack existed till now! Earned every star!
