4.5 out of 5
Great Hiking Backpack
July 26, 2012
I ordered this backpack as my first really nice hiking backpack. I had been looking around at many different brands and styles but this one is hands down the best one out there. The material is extremely durable and tough. Once we adjusted the pack to fit my hight it fits great. It is highly adjustable and can fit almost anyone. It will take hours to figure out all the features and capabilities of this pack. The connected rain cover works great and fits over the pack even with a tent and sleeping pad strapped to the exterior. For storage the bag seems like a bottomless pit. You can literally pack so much into it and still have plenty of room. Great backpack and I would recommend it for everyone.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Would have given 5 stars except for the trouble I had reaching my water bottles. Little heavy, but has to be to hold heavy loads and for all the comfort adjustments. Altrec did great job rushing to me for only a slight up charge, so I could make a Saturday hike. I had bought a 65+10 and decided I needed more room. Arrived on Friday and hiked 8.5 mi with 35#.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value, expands to hold more
