I used the SD Revival 65 for a week in Moab and love it. Very roomy and easy access to all areas of the pack.
- Easy to get to all pockets at any time

- Side pockets may not hold things in
I used the SD Revival 65 for a week in Moab and love it. Very roomy and easy access to all areas of the pack. Steep up and down for 16 miles round trip and it was never a nuisance. I could pack for a week trip with this pack. I even used it for a short 6 mile round trip hike and it was still lighter and more comfortable than my smaller backpacks.
Green color is pleasant. No problems with zippers or straps. No discomfort other than a little toasty around front chest straps when temps were greater than 60 degrees. Hip belt is stiff but not uncomfortable. Hydration pocket works fine for my 100oz. H20 bladder.
I would recommend this pack to anyone looking for high quality construction, lightweight, roomy, fairly inexpensive backpack. The Revival 65 is big though, the 50 would probably work just as well for weekend trips.
Not sure I trust the 2 big side pockets to hold things in. I use carabiners on anything I put in there.
