A big pack. Understand that it is mostly one compartment.

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Conservation Corp worker got it online. $280

Summary

A big pack. Understand that it is mostly one compartment. There are not lots of small pocket on this thing. Meant to haul a lot of gear, this thing is big, but in a wide and out kind of way. It is not much taller than most other 60L Ospreys, but goes out much further instead.

Pros

  • Big bag for large loads

Cons

  • It's big. Make sure it sits high enough.

Bought this pack for a PCT section hike. This thing is big. Went on an overnight. So far works well.

Make sure hip straps are high enough. Mine were to low and bruised me.

Good pack for longer trips, but too big for just a night or two.

Summary

I just bought this pack for an Aconcagua trip coming up. I used to have a Gregory Denali Pro (from 2005) which is durable as can be. Still early in evaluation, but this pack is a lot more comfortable than the old Gregory—better hip support and shoulder straps work great too.

Only negative so far is the water bottle holders. They are not really accessible unless you put the pack down, which means no drinking unless you stop. That's a negative for me. Still trying to see if there is a workaround.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Good hip belt support

Cons

  • Location of water bottle pouch
