Too many features that can go wrong and unreliable product manufacturing.


  • Web mesh on back for ventilation
  • Hip belt


  • Poor product manufacturing quality
  • Far too many straps, buckles = too complicated

On only my second trip with this pack a number of the poles of the internal frame simply shot out of the pack making it almost unwearable. This is a safety hazard and happened due to a manufacturing fault.

One of the most basic functions a pack needs to perform is to provide a stable storage unit for gear on your back.  This pack failed to do that. Based on my experience, I will not buy an Aarn pack again.
