Great backback except for one thing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I took this backpack with me on our trip to Kilimanjaro along with stops in Istanbul and on Safari in Tanzania. It performed beautifully as a day pack/travel pack. In addition, it really did a great job on Kilimanjaro over an 8 day trek. We had porters carring most of our heavy stuff but the small/medium I purchased carried everything else - 100oz water bladder, power bars, hats, coats, you name it - just did beautifully. However, the one thing that was a huge pain - especially in the dark and in the cold up over 14,000 feet was the stupid hook that holds the top compartment down. The hook slips through a loop which is no big deal when it's warm and you don't have gloves on. Drop the temperatures to the teens or single digits and try opening that thing with gloves - not happening. It took me several minutes to get it open on our climb up the last 4,000 feet to the summit. Huge pain in the butt. Why not just use the normal clip that you squeeze the sides to open? have to trip and pry that stupid hook through the loop. Really poor design. I don't know who thought that was a good idea but they should be fired. Everything else about the bag - phenomenal. Maybe I'll just cut the hook off and jerry rig my own clip into system...

Responded on

That metal piece is the stupidest thing in MH history. Heavy, inefficient, and jumps out without end on a non-fully load pack.

Awesome back, I use it for ultra light weekends, school, day trips, or weight training.hip belt takes weight off shoulders, only beef is that the straps are a little long.
