Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $25 (on sale)
This is one of those products that you'd like to complain about, but there's really nothing wrong with it. I don't like the rust/gray combo, but I got it on sale, and it's actually an OK pack. Has everything you need for a day trip with the family or maybe even an overnight trip. It's a bit unbalanced because the front pocket is kinda high.
- Nice, smooth zippers
- Several inner pockets in front pocket
- Ugly (IMO)
- Slightly unbalanced
This has a ton of room for a daypack. The straps are comfortable and the compartments are pretty well laid out. When it's really packed full, the pack is a little cumbersome to get on and fitting well, but I'd say that's the case with any pack that doesn't have a frame.
One thing that is kind of annoying is that the compression straps block the main zipper when they're clipped, but I don't know how you would avoid that, and lots of other packs have the same annoyance.
It seems to be pretty well made. I've taken it out a dozen times or so, and I haven't had any problems with quality.
It's a bit unbalanced because the front pocket is kinda high. So, when you put stuff in the organizers, it kinda weighs down the front section.
Overall, it's a good value, and I really can't find much to complain about.
