The North Face Gulper
Had this pack for 5 years and I love it. Never had…
Price Paid: $59
Had this pack for 5 years and I love it. Never had a rip or leak. To be honest it's the most reliable piece of gear I own.
Only "issue" I have had is after 4 years of regular service, the hose around the bite valve became worn and started to leak. So I cut about a inch down on the tube and reset the valve and it's good as new.
Use to think North Face was just a name thing and wasn't all that good. I am happy to say I was wrong.
