The Super Tioga is my third external frame pack since I got my first one in 1975. I have used, extensively, the original Dana Designs Terraplane, Osprey packs, ULA Catalyst, and Golite packs.
The Super T is a very well made and very well designed pack. It has plenty of interior space. Many options to strap gear to the outside. Hydration compatible. It has many useful pockets to organize and access gear. It is made from very durable materials and the quality of workmanship is true to the Kelty name.
The pack is easily adjustable for a comfortable fit. This pack carries very well whether loaded heavy or light. It is a very cool (on the back) pack to carry due to its design. The wires that hold the frame pins in place will rip your clothes if you do not tape them - I used electrical tape.
The front loading sleeping bag compartment has a circular zipper that can be hard to operate and getting a large sleeping bag in there can be a little testy.
I am thrilled with this pack and it should last for a really long time. I would highly recommend this pack. I got mine at Campmor and the price was very good compared to what you get with this pack and what some other packs offer for much more money. nuttnfancy does a good review on youtube.
