User Review: The North Face Primero 85
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Too much
I've taken this pack on several trips, mostly backcountry climbing. You can put a lot in it and it's pretty tough, that's about the only positive I can think of. The only reason I can still use it is because unfortunately as a Marine I was conditioned to carry heavy, uncomfortable loads for long distances. It's very uncomfortable and can't be adjusted properly.
- You can pack a lot in it.
- Waistbelt is uncomforable and very big.
- All around uncomfortable under load
- It doesn't balance out well at all because you can't adjust the pack corrently
The pack doesn't fit will at all. Hard to adjust
Capacity. It can fit a lot.
Organization is OK.
The ride is horrible. Don't try hopping with it. You'll be off balance under load as you can't adjust it properly
Compression: Reasonable, but like I said above, you'll feel out of balance.
Construction is tough, but that generally equates to heavy.
I've had the pack for 2 years. I've taken it on backcountry climbing trips, with decent approach distances over varied terrain. I bought a GoLite ultralite pack that handles better.
