Love this pack
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this pack because my wife has had the same pack for 6 or 7 years, hers is just a little smaller and a female version. When mine arrived she noticed a few improvements to the newer version. We loaded up our packs with about 50 lbs. each and headed down into the Grand Canyon to spend a couple of nights at the bottom. I had to make a handful of adjustments for the first half of the 7 mile hike down, I was being a bit picky about how my pack sat. After only a couple of hours my pack felt great and was sitting comfortably for the rest of our descent. For the 10 mile hike out my pack was extremely comfortable and broke in enough for me to be extremely happy. I had no problems with my pack, I am a very satisfied customer and I expect to get at least 7 years from it as my wife has. She by the way has backpacked all over the world with hers.
