I bought this backpack special order from R.E.I. I don't know how but I got away with only paying 89.99 dollars.

This backpack does everything I need for my day hikes/ climbs. There is enough headroom to climb steep hill. I had a problem with my old pack and not being able to look up. Lots of room and very comfortable.

Pro: Lots of tool accessories. ski/snowshoe/rescue hooks/climb. Lots of good space.

Cons: Only comes in red and new item so my review is the only one. Check out R.E.I. or Mountain Gear.
