Great Backpack
by on
Love the Approach series of backpacks. 25 is a great everyday pack. Main pack that I use. 45 is a great travel pack and hiking pack when you want to carry a little more stuff for the day in the woods or mountains. I have owned Mountainsmith packs for over 20 years and highly recommend them!
