September 29, 2012

I loved this backpackers. I used it on the camino Santiago in Spain. Since there were places to stay along the trail I only needed a small pack. It fit everything perfectly I was surprised how many clothes and etc I could stuff in it. Convienant pockets, and I liked the top part to use for things I needed while hiking like guides and lunch. After 800k there is only some slight fraying on the chest straps but nothing serious I plan on using it again on the via plata next year. Highly recommended.
