Design: top and front loading
Max. Load Carried: 75+ lbs

I have had this pack for a little over 7 years, numerous trips and besides the first trip, have not had a problem!! The first trip was just 3 days of hiking around my neighborhood with it loaded up to break it (and me) in. That got the waistbelt fitting and the rest of the straps and stays to where I needed them.
this is an excellent bag!! Swallows everything, great balance when done right. I can fit EVERYTHING inside, the tent, camp mat, sleeping bag, you name it!
I like the lower area separated from the top, I can then place my down bag in a trash bag and load in any other things that HAVE to stay dry.
The detachable fanny pack works well for storing cooking supplies. Detach and you can have dinner started while you finish setting up camp.
Overall the best bag I have owned. I got it as a gift from an aunt that worked for TNF, so she knew what to get.
If you can find one, get it!!
