Tried it, liked it, but didn't love it.


  • Capacity
  • Suspension


  • Awkward sloped bottom

Nice suspension system for sure.

Nice capacity.

but I found this Herald pack to be a bit over-designed and fussy to work with.

And it has the awkward sloping bottom that many SD packs have. When you put it down on the ground it won't stand up on its own. 

Instead, try the Sierra Designs Discovery. I think it's a much better pack.
