I've owned the Gryphon LT for about 10 years. It has performed very well. The only wear and tear is one of the water bottle pockets is starting to rip. It is a lightweight pack that carries well. I use the external side pockets for food. They detach for hoisting up on a "bear" rope. I have mainly used it in the BWCAW.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Carries well

Cons

  • Needs additional pockets.

Very comfortable pack up to about 50 lbs.  More external pockets would help.
