What to write?
Here are some things to consider when reviewing a backpack:
Fit: How well does the pack and all straps fit you? Is it designed for women, children, shorter-torsos?
Comfort: Are hip belts and shoulder and sternum straps adjustable and comfortable? How well does it vent?
Capacity: Is the advertised volume accurate? Does it fit a reasonable amount of gear?
Organization & Accessibility: Is equipment stowed securely? Is it easy to access? Intuitive?
Ride: How well is the pack's load distributed? Does it remain comfortable over its carrying capacity and intended uses? Does it feel stable?
Compression: Does the pack adjust well to different loads?
Ease of Use: Do parts and features work as expected? Consistently?
Features: Any noteworthy features, designs, or technology? Do they live up to expectations?
Construction & Durability: Is it well made? How has it held up over time?
Conditions: Where, when, and how long have you used this gear?
