Pros:

  • Sturdy construction.
  • Water resistant.
  • Two Nalgenes fit in each side pocket.
  • Front pocket converts to day pack.
  • Zipper down the front makes stuff in the bottom accessible.
  • Very comfortable.
  • Lots of space (perhaps too much).
  • Hydration compatible.

Cons:

  • The buckles that secure the lid connect to the bottom of the back panel instead straight down which makes it awkward. Easily fixed with scissors and a needle.
  • The lid hangs awkwardly of the front when the pack is not full.
  • If you unzip the lid pocket while the pack is leaned against a tree, everything falls out.

Price Paid: it was a gift but i suspect around $100
