I'm a student of Adventure Education and spend time climbing, hiking, playing the harmonica and going to classes. This pack allows me to do all those things with ease and not a lot of fuss. while in school my rock gear is in the bottom of my bag with my hiking shoes and my school books are at the top and because of the bottom zipper i can easily get some hiking or buldering in between class. I spent the summer on a trail crew hauling tools so yes it's durable, unbelievably comfortable, easy to adjust, and ways nothing.
This is my second Osprey bag and I am excited for my third.
What would you recommend for Rain Pans that are packable
Either really, I have done a lot of research on Arc'teryx coats and feel good about the Decision. But I just don't know enough about other brands. I know I want three layer Gore-tex and a coat that I can use in the winter as well as in the summer as an outer layer. I'm in the Adventure Education field and I need something that works and is going to last.
What is a good jacket that is the equivalent of this.
