  • Summary: Best for: Taking plenty of heavy gear (for whatever reason) long distances into the backcountry. The pack carries the load quite well and comfortably. It will also stand up to real use and bushwhacking with no durability issues. Recommended: Very much yes. For whom: Folks who want/need to take heavy gear without being concerned with "babysitting" their pack. It can take a beating and will not let you down.
  • Pros: Durable, Carries heavy loads comfortably, Allows your back to breathe (external frame), Belt buckles are forward-pull
  • Cons: Heavy pack, Hydration sleeve is horizontal (only fits two liters), No load lifters (Kelty Trekker has them)

  • Excerpt: 1. The pack is adjustable for comfort, putting the weight mostly on the belt and off the shoulders and back. 2. The convenience of the pockets is great. 3. The extra weight is offset by the overall comfort and back ventilation. 4. Water is easy to transport either in camel back pouch, side pockets, or top of pack. 5. For lite carriers, I've had no problem going less then 20 lbs. and hiking comfortably.

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a cold weather sleeping bag but didn't want to spend a fortune. I was offered a special discount on this bag ($127) so I bought it. I bought the long, I'm 5'10" 180 lbs but the regular would have be fine in hindsight. I was worried it was going to be to tight in the shoulders but I have plenty of room in the bag. I will outline the pluses and minus.
