Price Paid: $290
I took this mountaineering pack with me to the Shenandoah National Park on a few mile hike. This pack had enough room too carry practically anything you could take with you.
I packed a full size 4-man tent a giant sleeping bag, food and water bladders. The hike started with a drizzel and the further we made it down the trail the worse the weather got this pack with no rain protection covering it was impenatrable for the most part but don't count on it to be 100 percent waterproof.
The stability of the pack was good it rested on the hips nicely and the shoulder straps were cushioned well as was the hip belt. When first breaking in this pack it will be squeaking with the side to side motion of your stride. Buy it if you need plenty of space to stuff your gear.
