I carried two of these on a 150+ mile backpacking hike on the Ice Age Trail. Tough and light, the Nalgene container does the job when it comes to filling, drinking and using a water sterilization tool like the Steripen. Only knock -- Backcountry's printed logo and more importantly, measuring scale, abraded away in less than two weeks.

Not as light weight as I was looking for, but made up for that shortcoming in other ways. The shoulder areas are durable as the material withstood the constant abrading of the shoulder straps of my 40 lb backpack. When the vent zippers are opened and the front zippered lowered a bit, I found myself to be quite comfortable with little if any 'clammy' heat build up.

What an amazing piece of trail equipment! The body fit was fantastic, and the adjustable features very beneficial. Load capacity is perfect for long distance hiking. The very well designed sleeping bag compartment is convenient and easy to load/unload. I wound up folding a Therm-a-rest pad and storing it with the sleeping bag. The water bottle holder while easy to access and very secure never got in the way while hiking through rough terrain. The Baltoro 70 has few, if any, unnecessary features. Nice job Gregory!
