I'm a fan of the Talon 44, it's a pretty cool pack but if i were to go back I'd look into something else. On my latest venture I packed lightly for five days and even that was tight. I'd only buy the Talon 44 if you had a way of distributing supplies between your party. I'm thinking this particular pack may be too small for a trek of that caliber. Depending on what you are carrying and how often you re-up on supplies, I might consider something a bit larger. I wish you the best!

They are incredibly resilient... I've worn my pair pretty heavily for about a year now. The condition and perhaps most importantly the waterproofing are still intact.

This towel stayed damp for the duration of the trip... It would dry over night, but when stored in my pack it was always damp. Not to mention, it was difficult folding this towel back into the little mesh sack in which in came
