Summary

Great size and very lightweight. Not a lot of extra straps and zippers to weigh it down. Had mine for 6 years and use it about 75 to 100 nights out per year.

Pros

  • Durable, durable, durable
  • Light weight
  • Removable top pouch to fanny pack

Cons

  • Mesh side pockets stretched and tore over time

I've used this pack extensively for worktrips with my non-profit Friends of Kings Peak and working for the Forest Service in the High Uintas of northern Utah.
