User Review: Coleman Max 65
Price Paid: $15
Found this pack mis-labeled for $15 when I stopped in to grab some stove fuel. Couldn't pass up the deal, so I picked it up. I gotta say, this pack has some nice features. More pockets and stashy spots than my 'big name' pack. The stitching is very sound, the material very rugged. Feels like this thing could be dropped off a cliff and be alright.
The only downside is that it's a tad heavy. Oh and the zippers are not snag free. That really urks me, especially around the sleeping bag compartment. BUT for the price i can live with my neon orange eyesore. It's a good size for 1-3 day adventures, so long as you don't overpack. Lots of straps to compress load and daisy chain to attach any gear that wouldn't fit inside. It even sports an attached rain cover.
Bottom line, this pack is great example of Coleman tryin to get back into the game with their MAX line of equipment.
