User Review: Outdoor Products Trailhead Framepack 8.0
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $30
We purchased this pack for our oldest son for Boy Scouts. He loves it. It's big enough to hold all his gear plus (an additional bonus his sleeping bag). It was really reasonably priced compared to most of the others out there.
- It withstands outdoors and teenagers!!!! Excellent.
- When it's off balance on your back it's not easy to carry.
It does have a frame and when sized appropriately it fits our son perfectly. When it's all strapped correctly he has told us it fits great and he can hike forever with it.
The catch is to load it accordingly so it balances. When it's off balance he's found it's very uncomfortable. Even if you have it strapped down accordingly. It does adjust well to different loads as long as others don't attempt to rebalance it for you.
It's been holding up great in all aspects of weather...In fact he's used this backpack for 1 year now and was wanting to get his brother one for his birthday and we can't find them anywhere.
