Very cheap quality. Zippers broke off after one use. Complete garbage
I can't give it 5 stars yet because I have not tested its durability, but it seems to be very high quality. This pack is huge, but somehow I have it stuffed to the brim with only 45lbs of weight total with food and no water. This thing looks ridiculously huge and I cant figure out how I filled it up. I've gone through it multiple times trying to reduce load, different packing methods, etc. It remains stuffed to the max no matter what I do. I was very surprised with that. But I suppose the age old rule applies, If you have the space you will fill it, haha. Anyways, It is very comfy to hike in, load doesn't shift, and I don't look like a junk show anymore with gear hanging everywhere on the outside of my pack. I like it!
Well, I asked if it came with keen dry or eVent material, since it has conflicting info on here, and I was told eVent. It came with keen dry and I was disappointed.
They are very nice, high quality, and very comfy. Like others said, they run a bit small. I wear a 34 normally, and they fit loose. I ordered a 36 for these pants and they fit awesome!
Yes definitely an XL. I was recommended a L and it was too tight of a fit to get in the sack. XL is great
This is lightweight and sets up very fast! Everything looks sturdy and well made. I have only had it out in a light drizzle, but so far its dry inside. Vestibule is tiny, but that's fine with me as I store my pack inside the tent. 2 people can fit, but without gear in the tent. I got it for just me anyways. Overall, I like this tent a lot so far!
Just like everyone said, very good affordable stove and very light weight. It doesn't work well in the wind but I didn't expect it to with no wind screen. Just keep it out of the wind and you're golden.
I don't know about this one...It came all frayed out and the stuff sack velcro is all ripped. What a piece of crap.
Sorry, maybe this was in the wrong section. Also, I dont use bladders because they always fail. I only use bottles on the trail. I have a dromedary for base camp, though, that i hang from a tree. But I dont use it in a pack because smashing and squeezing them causes failure. Bladders are just unreliable in a survival situation.
This has a 200 gallon capacity for those wondering
why dont you guys just get a berkey bottle and do away with all the dumb expensive external filters and the extra weight?
