Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: ?

As my first pack, and the only pack that I've ever carried, I feel that I can't give the most accurate review of this backpack. However, this pack has never failed me or shown any signs of wear.


- Lots of space with an optional lower compartment perfect for stuffing a sleeping bag away

- Plenty of places to attach extra gear

- Comfortable, wicking shoulder straps and breathable fabric against the back


- There's too many extra straps and cords on the pack; it can be annoying when you're trying to get to stuff

Overall, a pretty good pack for its price.
