Max. Load Carried: 102 lbs
Height of Owner: 5 and 10
This bag is superb. I can load it with as much as 100lbs for training and it does not disturb me. Of course this is heavy, but I don't feel any pressure point or discomfort. I used it mostly on winter trips. I am rough with my equipment and when I compress my gear, I compress my gear. This bag has endured all this without any sign of weakness. It's really built tough.
The bag can carry A LOT of gear. Even if you are a disorganised or non packing person, everything will fit in this bag. The mesh panel on the frontside allows easy acces to your gear at the bottom of this cavernous pack. The top can easily be detached to be used as a good daypack. Mesh sides pockets are very good. It allows the snow to get trought when it's storming. You can easily fit two 1 liter fuel bottle in each.
My only little complaint would be about the opening of the sleeping bag compartment. My last pack was an Osprey and the opening was huge. On the Denali Pro, fitting a -40 down bag in the sleeping bag compartment is kind of a challenge everytime! The compartment is more big than enough, this is the size of the opening that is too small. There is no way you'll enter an already compressed winter bag by this panel. Anyway, you'll find your own tricks about that like I did, and after this, this Denali Pro will look like a nature wonder!
Sure is a bit expensive but well worth it.
