Summary

This pack has only 3 external pockets and a shove it pouch. It is versatile pack though. It is very comfortable and adjustable.

Pros

  • It seems big
  • Durable

Cons

  • Only 3 external pockets

I got this pack for a trip in the German alps. It was an amazing pack. I have used internal and external frame packs. This one is my favorite internal frame one.

It has a sleeping bag compartment that can zip out to make one big one. The padding is not too soft or too hard. it has straps making it easy to strap things to the outside. They were nice for drying towels in between huts (you can not set up tents in the alps). I also have found it very durable.
