Yep, I mailordered a pack. mistake. I am very impressed by the pack with its many college friendly features as well as being climbing and backpacking friendly. Great pack...as long as you have narrow shoulders/neck. Do not buy this unit if you have ever been told that you have a thick neck. The shoulder straps are not adjustable where they attach laterally, and are set rather close together. Big trap muscles definitely need to avoid this pack. Otherwise, great unit and I really wish it would have fit.


This pack is relatively nice, however the Cordura…

This pack is relatively nice, however the Cordura has eroded around the high stress stitching areas and I've had to return it back for warranty repair. Its many pockets are nice, and it's pretty comfortable. You do need to fit your torso length to the pack. It will let you know quickly if you chose the wrong size (regular or long torso).

Its internal HDPE/Aluminum frame is somewhat thicker than others, making the backpack more stiffer in the back area than others. It's still a good all around day/overnight pack.
