from Baltimore, MD United States
Admittedly, I just got this pack and have only used it once but I already feel compelled to write a review. I recieved this pack in the mail, filled it with my backpacking gear, and took it out on the trail two days later. I was only doing a day hike but i wanted to test it out with a full load and get it dialed in for an upcoming backpacking trip. In any event, I spent the first few miles making minor adjustments and really getting the fit down but once I did that this pack was unbelievably comfortable. I put in 20 miles on the AT in Pennsylvania the first time I wore this pack and couldn't have felt better. The load lifters did their job perfectly, the weight was properly transferred to my hips, the hip belt was quite comfortable, and the hipbelt pockets are great. Again, I couldn't be happier and look forward to many many more miles with this pack.
