Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

All the compartments are great, including the hip belt pockets. I recently went on a 5 day hike and had no problem fitting and organizing all my gear. I love the top compartment and side ones for their capacity and easy access - a must when you need to have certain gear and snacks easily accessible.

This is the most customizable pack for fit that I have ever seen, you can really dial it in for a perfect fit. I should mention, at first I had an issue with the hip belt slipping. The hip belt has a pad that extends and is attached via velcro pad inside the strap. The actual hip belt strap attaches to the extendable pad, so all the pulling force is actually applied to the velcro. One side kept slipping on me (which was very frustrating). I finally realized there was a piece of extra fabric covering most of the velcro pad, so it didn't have the needed holding power. After removing the extra fabric off the velcro I have had zero issues with it slipping.

People have mentioned they want a hip belt strap to convert the brain pack into a day pack... I have used the full pack as a day/summit pack and greatly prefer it over a small uncomfortable lumbar pack. The compression straps suck everything down nicely and the lighter the load, the closer it feels to real "Anti-Gravity". Plus I like keeping my hydration reservoir with me at all times, cant do that with a lumbar pack!

Overall, the pack is super light, comfortable, functional, and versatile. I highly recommend it.

If you plan on keeping you thule locked to your car these are a must need. Anyone that has a little bit of thule knowledge can yank the rack right off your car in a matter of minutes if they are not locked. Easy buy here no brianer

My wife and I both purchased these, primarily because we wanted a good quality sandal to take on backpacking trips for giving our feet a break at camp, and fording creeks if necessary. At first we were looking at Chacos, but they were HEAVY. So we turned our attention to these Keen's and are so glad we did!

They are Very light and comfortable. I now use them for daily use, not only for backpacking. After you get them all dirty, just throw them in the wash and they look like new again! I normally wear a size 13 but I sized down to a 12 with these which fit me perfect. I wanted a more snug fit.

They say they are "Waterproof" (says right on the sandal) but every time I wear them in water my feet get wet... Whats up with that? :)

All joking aside we love our Keen's and expect to get many, many years worth of use out of them.

I purchased this pack after realizing the one I was using had too small of a frame for my torso. I am 6'2" and I got the Large frame. This pack is amazing! I no longer get fatigue from pain, just from actual hiking (as it should be!). I have hiked nearly 100 miles since I acquired the pack this year so I have become very familiar with it.

Wanna know my favorite part about this item, the cleanup time takes about 6 seconds. Pop that out and toss it in the trash and you are good to go! Hard to argue with that, it has absolutely zero effect on how the food cooks. Still get a great meal of food and can kick back and toss a few cold ones down after dinner until you crash back to your tent.

Look no further for a good doggie life vest, keeps them afloat, and make sure you size it correctly. Riley is in the Red jacket which is a large, she's a Vizzla, and Milo is in a medium in the green jacket. He's a mut which is great and i like things that are great! Happy Doggies=Happy Humans!

I tried this shoe on and was turned off a little bit by the toe box. Still a very comfy shoe for sure other than that. If it was a tad wider it would be better for me but my forefoot is a bit wide but the rest of my foot is pretty normal. The heel was way comfy and i'm sure after it was broken in would be just fine. all in all a good shoe. The toe box wrap was a bit stiff but as i said i'm sure once they were broken in would be just fine.

I tried the shoe on and was hesitant of how this foam would react to my foot. I was very happy with the fit and how the width in the forefoot was very kush and comfortable. Would recommend this shoe for running and walking distances.
