More durable than a Panzer tank
Another quality product churned out by Ze Germans. Have taken this out on countless back and side country outings in Colorado and have yet to find such as a hint of a scratch anywhere on the pack, and its been through some grizzly adventures. Ski carry with durable side straps make attaching and detaching skis a thing of the past and can be used for 2-3 night trips during anytime of year. There is absolutely nothing about this pack I'd change (maybe a hipbelt pocket and more padding in the actual hipbelt, but those are trivial concerns) for its uses).
