Great access to main compartment; comfortable; adjustable. Keeps your back dry. Excellent for overnight trips

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Excellent zippers
  • Big main compartment with full access
  • Good for urban use too
  • Great for carrying my flyrod tube
  • Durable

Cons

  • No pockets in bottom belt

I use the Airzone Centro for flyfishing: in Chile's Andean streams you have to walk a lot in rocky terrain, carry clothing, some food, fly boxes, etc. With this backpack you do not need a fishing vest.

The Airzone Centro has adjusting straps. I am male, 5'9", and fit is excellent. It has hip and chest belts (very light, no pockets).

The airzone system keeps the backpack separated from your back. This prevents perspiration to condense.

I have not put a lot of weight in it (I'd say 12 pounds). Harness is more focused in breathability than cushioning so I guess there are better backpacks if you want to carry weight.

Fabric is ripstop. Zippers are top notch and are covered with a rubberlike material.

On top it has a pocket for documents, phone, etc. I'd say its volume is about 16 fl oz

I also use this backpack for overnight trips to visit mining clients in northern Chile. I pack clothes for the next day, a safety helmet, leather gloves, 2 pairs of safety glasses and breathing mask, plus my personal gadgets.

The Airzone Centro has a bottom pocket containing a rain cover. I have never used it.

In summary I am very pleased with this backpack.
