So Awesome!!!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

First trip out of the package for these was a two and a half week Medical Teams International trip to Nepal (in February). I used these in the most remote Himalayan District of Humla. We got stranded in a freak snow storm that dumped over 2' of snow! They were a life saver!

Best Travel Carry On
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First trip out of the package for this pack was a two and a half week Medical Teams International trip all over Nepal (in February). This pack took an amazing beating and never quit! From the Besi (bottom of the mountains) to the heights of the most remote Himalayan District of Humla, this pack took it all! I used this pack as my carry on and as a "summit pack". If my Osprey Packs Aether AG 70 wasn't with me this pack was! It has replaced my prior carry-on bag for life. And, it attaches to the Osprey Packs Aether AG 70; however, not the fastest set-up for attaching (especially when both are stuffed full)! Such a great product! The only suggestion to improve your use of this pack would be to use a small carabiner to attache your water bottle, they tend to work their way out of the mesh side packets.

This Is The Best Pack I've Ever Used!!!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First trip out of the package for this pack was a two and a half week Medical Teams International trip all over Nepal (in February). This pack took an amazing beating and never quit! From the Besi (bottom of the mountains) to the heights of the most remote Himalayan District of Humla, this pack took it all! I can tell you the comfort of a pack greatly starts to diminish when you are sucking for air at twelve thousand feet (and up) above sea level. This pack was by far the most comfortable pack up there! I've carried this pack in the low lands with highs in the high 70s with high humidity and in the heights of the Himalayas with the highs in the low 20s and everything between. All I can say is I've carried a lot of pack in all conditions over the years, this pack is the most comfortable and the most durable pack I've ever encountered! Such a great product!

First trip out of the package was a two and a half week medical teams trip all over Nepal (in February). This bag packed my 0 degree down bag with SOL bivy inside. It was a super tight fit; however, it never tore or ripped and kept everything dry as well! Great product!
