A great pack to start with because it is comfortable, great weight distribution system, and easy access.
- Most comfortable hip belt
- Best weight distribution system
- Easy access to all pockets
- Not a lightweight bag
- Easy to over pack
I am a beginner backpacker and this was my first pack I liked. It is very comfortable, has a great weight distribution system, and easy access to all parts of the bag. The hip belt is wide and very padded, which makes it very comfortable and the shoulder straps are very ridged which I like because they will not rest on my shoulders unless I want them to.
I carried around 55 pounds in this bag with no issues. The only issue I ran into was hip belt blisters because I had my pants too high and they were rubbing me.
This is a great pack for someone starting out who is not concerned with weight.
