Best pack I've ever used
I tried this pack on a trip in the Needles in Canyonlands. Love it!! The belt is super comfy and you can get it molded to fit your waist perfectly! The pockets were ingenious, I love being able to reach my snacks when I am hiking and I was able to do so with this pack. You can also reach the pocket that is on top to grab your map out without taking your pack off.
There is a zipper to unzip the main compartment of the pack without havig to open everything up and repack everything. I also loved the separate compartment for your sleeping bag and the on the go adjustability of the shoulder straps so I could shift the load around if it started to get uncomfortable.
It was really hot when I was hiking and the AirScape back panel really did its job so i didn't end up with a super sweaty back.
I have tried many, many packs and ended up very bruised and battered but with this one I only got the usual sore waistband area which is to be expected when you are carrying 40+ pounds. I LOVE my new pack!!!!
