Great Pack

I really love this pack. As with any gear there are pros and cons that you learn over time. I'd have to say that the only real gripe I have with this pack is the shallow side pockets for water bottles. It's hard to keep bottles in without popping out unless you tether them to the pack with a carabiner or the side comperssion strap. They are also difficult to reach while the pack is on. But that's certainly no show stopper. I've used this pack on numerous trips into the Adirondacks and through Glacier, Yosemite, and Rainier on multi-day backpack excursions. It's seen some rough handling, but after brushing the dirt off of it it looks new still. I definitely reccomend this pack.

All around good backpack

First off this backpack is very solid and well constructed. It's a little heavier than some backpacks of similar size, but with the weight you get more durability. I definitely don't have to baby this pack. The size is pretty nice for overnights or weekend trips and if you pack on the lighter side you can put a few days worth of gear inside it. It compresses down very well for smaller loads and the lid is removable if you want to drop a little more weight. The padding is also very nice and comfortable for wearing on long hikes. There are only a few things I don't like about this pack:

1) Unable to reach water in side pockets with pack on. You either have to stop and remove the pack or just use a camelbak.
2) Few pockets. There are only 3 main pockets in this bag, which doesn't leave much room for organization. There is the main, lid pocket (fairly large, can put a rain jacket inside), and front pocket (also fairly large).
3) Hip pockets would have been nice.

I'd like some clarification on the lid part. Your review said you could remove it, but the product description says you can't. If you remove it will you have to cut some straps? Or is it clipped on? Thanks!!

Responded on

Nope. You can just take it right off. All you have to do is undo the straps no cutting or anything required. You can also remove the plastic frame sheet and the aluminum support rod if you want to drop the weight even lower for a frameless style backpack.

Sorry for the delay, I haven't been on here in a while.

Is this pack big enough to carry a 2 person...

Is this pack big enough to carry a 2 person tent, sleeping bag, 2 days of clothes and a few other essentials??

Responded on

Definitely, assuming your tent and sleeping bag aren't abnormally large.

Responded on

As James said it is very dependent on the size of your sleeping bag and tent. Yes if you are using any standard synthetic or down backpacking bag, if you are still rocking your snoopy bag from your youth it might not fit.

Responded on

Definitely. I carry a Kelty Salida 2 in mine along with a 20 degree down sleeping bag and 2 days worth of supplies. You'll have no problem as long as you don't stuff it with a ton of luxury items. If your sleeping bag is a huge synthetic you might have some issues.
