Really great pack
by on
I am pretty picky about backpacks. I think I may have tried 5 or 6 packs before I got this one. The material is awesome.... I really like the new Cordura. I got the Rust colored pack and love it, it is very retro. The straps are extremely comfortable. It is lightweight and durable. Zippers work nice. The capacity is exactly right for day trips. Love the sternum strap! The search for a backpack is finally over, thanks Mountainsmith!
