rated 5 of 5 stars Features I don't see in other packs, quality seldom seen anywhere. I used a 1970s model Lowe Expedition for years, then the sorry scum in Marsailles stole it and everything in it. I had not found a pack its equal since. Then I found this. The suspension is extremely well thought out and adjustable. It can be configured as a big sack or you can separate the bottom compartment. The compartments on the back are large enough to actually be useful—something a lot of current packs sort of miss out on. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Best well built and comfortable pack you will ever find. First, let me say that this is one great comfortable well built pack. The way this thing rides on my back is like no other. (I own a Kelty Red Cloud, Osprey Atmos, and a couple smaller packs.) The craftsmanship of this pack is way above the others and carries loads of 40 – 60 lbs very easily.

Booty Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars 讲真,MR出了个买菜包,价格还很贵。可提可背,很方便。透气肩带,骚气的MC迷彩色。我很喜欢。买菜主袋里还有个拉链袋放贵重物品。 [Google Translate: Speak true, MR out of a shopping bag, the price is also very expensive.

Wet Rib

rated 5 of 5 stars Puts your water where you can get to it often and easily, along with a map, sunblock, glasses, and other things you want close at hand. In wilderness first aid training we are taught to assume anyone in the wilderness is dehydrated, even if there is water all around in streams and ponds and the person is carrying water. Even with in-pack hydration it can be hard to drink enough because sucking on a tube causes a walker to lose his breath and stop drinking too early, and bottles carried elsewhere… Full review

Wet Rib

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Highly recommend for winter hikes. If you don't like to take off and put on your pack through the day, this backpack accessory is the ticket. I use this mainly for winter hikes where you don't want to fuss with taking your pack off and on. In the winter I want to keep moving and stay warm, this accessory allows me to do that with storage for my map, compass, mittens, snacks and medication. The zippers work great although I did add MSR Universal Reflective Zippers for easier grip with mittens. As… Full review
