Very versatile, well thought out. Mine's getting a bit tired, so if anyone has one they'd like to get rid of, let me know (Mario: in2theunknown@excite.com).

Pros

  • Well thought out
  • affordable
  • tough

Cons

  • none

This is a well thought out, economical, tough, and attractive pack.

Its size works well for large day loads to light hut trips.

Great pack for an overnight or short weekend (more if you've got someone to share the load with). A little small if you're going by yourself. Tons of strap-on points to lash on lots of stuff. Top pocket extends up so you can make it quite tall and still lash things down. Takes a bit getting used to to figure out how to pack so you can get to things and still be comfortable. Support pad comes out and makes a decent sleeping pad in a pinch.

I absolutely love this pack. I've used it for everything and it has never let me down. From hauling chainsaw fuel on trail crew to 30 lbs. on a six-day thru hike, this is my go-to pack. Great lash down points and compression straps. My only wish is that the top lid was convertible to a fanny pack. I wish they still made it, but mine has been going for nine years of steady use.

Nice small pack for one or two-nighters. Great for backcountry skiing and snowboarding because of its size. Lightweight and comfortable. If you can find them around, pick one up.

Finally! A smaller pack whose hipbelt doesn't fit like bra! Removeable frame, folded,closed cell back pad makes 3/4 length bivy pad. Very Nice!
