User Review: The North Face Terra 50
Number of Pockets: 3, one on top, two on sides
Max. Load Carried: 60 lbs.
Height of Owner: 5'11
This bag was awesome, as an eagle scout I think I survived Philmont with it. This means 60 lbs. of gear, 12 days on the trial.
Other critiques are correct, the bag lacks an adequate place for strapping a tent on, but that is one of its only downfalls.
The only other issue I have with it would be the large side pockets. Normally side pockets are split, 2 and 2 on each side, which allows compartmentalization of gear. This bag has two so you may have unlike types of gear mixed up in the same pocket. ie. firestarters, and bird-calling equipment.
Hope this helps. This is a great soft bag though!
