Great backpack for the price. It's fairly high end, but without the massive sticker shock of a $400 pack. Plenty of space, pockets, and decent back support too!

I love this pack. I bought it 5 years ago and have hauled it 300 miles since then with no issues. It's got plenty of room; I don't think I've ever not been able to fit all my gear in it. For the price, it can't be beat

This is a really nice backpack for the price. It is very durable, and light. I just with the outside pouches were able to seal a little better. If they are stuffed, the velcro will hold, but seems like it could pop open at a moments notice.
