This pack is freaken awesome. Super light weight for an aluminum frame pack. Awesome because it can carry a lot of gear. So versatile.

On one trip, I carried a 25 lbs and on another trip I carried a 50 lbs. I still had enough space to put more. It tightens up into a small lightweight daypack when you are ready to hit the trail. A total must get pack.
