Gear Review

5 5

So far so good. No change expected.

I'm not an ultra-lighter but I don't take things I don't use. However, I do lead backpacking trips sometime and that requires me to carry a little more than usual. This pack fits great and the front pocket is amazing. I especially love the center zipper on the front since things migrate to the bottom sometimes and I don't have to pull everything out. The range of this pack is also impressive. Remove the lid (which has tons of pockets for organization) and compress the collar down is all I have to do to take it from a multi-day to a perfect overnighter for hammock camping. I look forward to many miles with this pack, which won't be a problem because the straps are great. The only thing I changed was the addition of some p-cord and spring lock to hold my trekking poles. It was a breeze add this to the micro daisy chain down the side. One thing to note is the Copper isn't nearly as bright as it appears in the picture above.
