Heavy but tough
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really liked this pack but it was waaay to heavy and I ended up returning it. Just looking at it makes my knees hurt. The weights listed on this site are incorrect by almost a pound, check the manufacturers site. If you need to carry a ton of gear this pack is solid and has tons of great features. For lightweight weekend trips, its overkill. Also my chest strap broke the 4th time I used it. The bag material is super durable though. In general (and depending on your usage), you should consider the 70L for only a few additional ounces. Remove the top lid if its too much space and shave more weight off to get below the 60L base weight.
