User Review: Kelty Men's Coyote 4750
Price Paid: $160
i've had this pack for 5 years and it kicks ass, i've have been around the world three times with it, and bring it every year i go fishing in alaska with very few problems. you can fill it to the top (my record is 60 lb of gifts) or strap it down (had it down to 15 lb on my last trip) way easy. the easy access in the front is a life saver, and when you get the straps adjusted right you can run, bend, squat, turn, damn near do cartwheels in the thing.
so those are the pros, the only con is the buckles, they suck, i've broken the waist band buckle and two of the other ones so bring spare buckles if you are going somewhere were there isn't a sporting good store.
