Was looking towards these for a camp/water crossing shoe for backpacking. Liked the construction of the shoe but there's a seam on the front inside that kept catching on my toenails, even when I trimmed them way down. The rest of the shoe was comfortable around the house but just can't risk losing a toenail when my foot slips off a rock in a creek.
Purchased on Steep and Cheap and was impressed by the innovation. Durability is good. Light output and adjustment is fantastic. Headband is as comfortable as any others I've tried.
I agree with earlier reviews in that its difficult to snap the battery pack securely into the lantern base. It takes a lot of practice and you really need some light to see what you're doing. I've only had it out a couple nights so I can't vouch for battery life yet.
Bought this pack on Steep and Cheap and it truly was a steal. The build quality is amazing. Unfortunately the ergonomics just didn't fit my body. The gaps in the waist belt's vertically-oriented padding allowed the hard plastic inner support to rest directly on the points of my hip bones. Furthermore, no matter how I adjusted the shoulder straps and load lifters I always felt like my chest was a little too deep for the bag. I'm a usual pack size of men's medium with a 41-42" chest, and I had bought a M/L size pack. Again, this is just my body fit. Perhaps if the torso size was adjustable I could have made it work. Other than that the suspension was fantastic, ventilation was better than the Osprey Atmos, and the low weight for a 65L bag is impressive. Organization is top notch as well; I've never had a bag fit my stuff so well. Truly disappointed that it just wouldn't fit me. Two improvement suggestions: lose the bottle opener and add removable sleeping pad straps to the bottom.
