"Great pack, I have really lite packs but if I have been lazy and not been running this is the pack I use. We do 20 miles a day in the North GA mtns. Very tuff climbs and this pack offers support when I am living out of it for 2 or 3 nights. The rain gear works, straps have to be snugged a couple of times a day, but we do move pretty fast and some times it is ruff. I like that I can move the pack up or down in a water break 2 minutes I can have it back on walking. It a very tuff pack I have torn packs walking the same trails. This pack has held up well cleans with a damp rag."
"Very very roomy / more so than expected, simple design and EXTREMELY durable as well comfortable . I lugged around about 110-120 pounds of camping stuff along with 18 feet of seriously heavy steel chains that somehow fit in the bottom pocket of the bag and was completely comfortable and had no trouble at all. These chains were the thickest and heaviest I could find at lowe's hardware I'm shocked that it all could fit and still have mass room left and that it didn't fall apart on me. Love the H2O holes. My first backpack purchase and I don't regret it one bit. I recommend it."
