Every time I hit the trail, another 5-star reason to love this pack comes shining through!
I have used several different packs/manufacturers over the years, but this one forever changed my backpacking mindset. It wasn't until taking a four-day trip with a minimalist backpacking buddy (using a Skareb 65), that I realized the unnecessary strain and discomfort I was putting myself through. He agreed to switch packs for a few hours on the second day of our trip, and I was amazed at the difference this pack can make. The X-radial suspension system turned a 40 lb load into a walk in the park! I went from a sweaty exhausted mess, to a smiling and WHISTLING carefree backpacker... until we switched back :)
Anyhow, I have owned this pack for several months now, and I have a list of my favorite Skareb-attributes.
* X-radial frame is the best suspension I've ever encountered: stable, lightweight, and lightens the perceived weight of carrying load
* No rain cover needed
* Backpanel is comfortable and well-ventilated
* Material is surprisingly durable, and exceptionally lightweight
* Cavernous pack space
* Good looking w/ an even mor attractive Liftime warranty
Thanks TNF, two thumbs WAY up!
