I purchased my D5 in 1976; I used it last weekend in Sedona! It's simply a great pack. I've carried between 65 and 70 pounds in it. (Guadalupe, TX--no water on top) It creaks and moans under the weight. I carry lightweight wrenches and cable ties for field repairs; it's in pretty rough shape and makes a great conversation piece on the trail too. I want to have my JanSport tent refinished because the lash straps on the pack match up to the loops on the tent bags. Also, other b'packers get jealous when I pull it off and stand it upright on the hip-hoops. It's a great backpack!
