The best canoe pack for fall
I purchased one of these 70 L packs to use on an extended weekend trip in the BWCA in mid-October. It worked great! We were constantly bombarded by rain, snow, sleet and wind and this bag stayed toasty dry inside, which is good news for my down sleeping bag. Using a chunk of foam padding as a back panel helps greatly, and will hold all of your gear. The strap system is quite comfortable even while portaging a 70 lb royalex canoe. Great buy!
