Would definitely recommend this pack to anyone looking for a large pack thats is all around great. Its suspension system is amazing making even the heavier loads feel light. This pack has so many great features there isn't really much more you could want.
- Suspension System
- Access panels/many pockets
- removable top lid
This pack is an awesome pack for anyone looking for a larger pack for weekend to extended trips. I got a medium and it fit me great I am a 5'9" male weighing about 170 lbs, but you should measure yourself or get measured at a shop to insure proper fit.
Honestly this is the most comfortable pack I have ever had to pleasure to use. The suspension system makes 25 pounds feel like nothing and even in the heavier weights it's still comfortable and doesn't bruise your hips. The pack having a nice 65 liters can fit all your gear and food you need comfortably up to 5 days and if you cut down a bit you can probably go for longer.
Along with great capacity there is great organization including a sleeping bag compartment with a removable divider along with this there is side access to the pack so you can quickly grab what you need without unpacking your whole pack. This pack also is equipped with many compression straps to help keep your load secure even with a lighter load.
Probably the coolest feature is the removable top lid to use as a small pack for any shorter day hikes will already on the trail also the belt pockets are great for storing things like snacks, compasses, camera, or whatever else you need really quick. Also this pack has a specific spot for a water bottle which can easily fit a Nalgene and has a strap to secure it down.
This pack is super durable and Gregory backs it with a lifetime guarantee if your pack has any defects. I've only been able to use this pack on a couple 2-day trips on some well kept trail, but all in all it held up great and I absolutely love this pack and would recommend it to anyone looking for a multiday pack. HAPPY HIKING.
