Max. Load Carried: 50LB
Height of Owner: 5'10"
Price Paid: $200
I was in the research stage of planning a trip: Alaska to Argentina by land. For extended travel, the most common size backpack is anywhere between 50L - 120L with 60L - 70L being the average.
I was trying to do a year 1/2 with 20L. It just wasn't possible, but almost. I owned many backpacks at the time, including Arc'Teryx M40, and Arc'Teryx RT 35. Both are great backpacks, but just didn't have the right feel for this huge adventure. I checked out the Arc'Teryx Miura 30 at REI, and the feel + minimalist design sold me.
I finished my Alaska to Argentina by land adventure, and after a year 1/2 and 18 countries, how did this backpack hold up? Actually, amazingly well. I still wear the backpack in the Colorado backcountry to this day. After living out of this backpack for a year 1/2 in many different environments - ranging from 15,000ft. peaks in Peru, to climbing Volcanoes in Nicaragua - I can attest to its extreme durability and overall robustness.
