Mountain Hardwear Koa 55
Being a Mountain Hardwear, I may have expected more…
Price Paid: $190
Being a Mountain Hardwear, I may have expected more than what I got. The pack was way comfortable, but in the material category lacked the quality that should come from MH.
The first trip out, a cinch strap buckle on the bottom of the pack self destructed, the zip out external pocket ripped, and I found one of my zipper tassles was sewn into a seam which had to be cut so the pocked would open.
On the plus side, with its super wide roll top you can really stuff gear, and I really enjoyed the bottom and side access points.
Maybe, MH could add another lb of material back into the manufacturing so the pack could actually handle the weight.
