Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love a good backpack, I definitely have too many. Although if I'm going anywhere I am bringing this one. Covers all sports in all conditions. Looks like a normal minimalist backpack and performs like the dry bag it is. I've used it canyoneering- swimming and jumping through slot canyons. Skiing/all winter sports- heavy snow and rain conditions. Rafting - cold and whitewater conditions. And pretty much anytime I'm going overnight somewhere- I just got sick of my gear getting wet from unexpected rain but that all changed with this pack. I've never seen anyone else with it and it blows my mind because I'm constantly getting compliments. Hell of a pack, highly recommended.
