Big Bear 78

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a solidly built pack that has held up for many trips and many years. This pack has held up real nice for many years.

rated 3 of 5 stars It's a nice looking bag that falls short in its design. By adding too many compartments, they've lost valuable space. I liked the construction, but not the layout. Full review
