Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, a good pack I recently purchased this pack, and am happy with the overall item. There are only two changes I would like to the design. Most importantly, the removable day-pack (top cover on the main pack) contains its own back straps, but when they are deployed, the zipper on the pack faces upwards with the protective flap on the lower edge, thus not protecting the zip from the weather. It would be a very simple manufacturing issue to put the shoulder straps on the opposite side of the day pack so that the flap was above the zip and prevent any rain from reaching the zip. The second change would be to increase the depth of the pouches on the waist strap. Currently they are quite small and can only just hold a standard size cellphone or camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomb proof This was the smallest pack I have every carried on an expedition this big. Usually, I would take a 90L for anything over 15 days. It was a struggle to fit all my gear inside. In the end by packing it correctly I got it all in. It had the perfect amount of stretch in the fabric to hold all the gear. I put that pack through harsh tests on this trip. It has been made very well and am amazed by its performance especially off track. There were at times I had to drag it using the handles that are built in. Out of all the seven packs I have ever owned, this is the first that didn’t give me blisters on my hips. The harness on the bag is fantastic, and it holds itself quite high on your back, but dosent sick up above your head, which I like. Its perfect for carrying through thick bush. It doesn’t have any pockets other than two on the sides which makes it ideal for not catching on things. I can’t think of anything wrong with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable up to 16kg for a six day hike. I have used this pack for overnighters with the kids and have just returned from a hard 6 day tramp around Mt Ruapehu. It is pretty comfortable when correctly adjusted although the instructions are not amazingly simple to follow so there have been a lot of minor adjustments on the tramp as I went along. I did find that it hurt my shoulders when loaded over 18kg but was fine around 16kg. The material is very tough so no holes so far but a pack liner is a must as no pack is waterproof in pouring rain. Overall, I'm happy with it especially at the sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy! I purchased my pack late last year at one of Kathmandu's great sales and I'm very satisfied with and recommend this pack. Earlier this year I spent two weeks in the South Island NZ and walked the Milford Track while there.... The pack is well balanced and a comfortable fit, the straps are easy to adjust while walking and very supportive. I decided to take my pack to Japan for two weeks recently instead of a suitcase on wheels... this was the right decision, it was so easy to get around but I did have to be careful on the trains, nearly knocked a few people over when I turned around. The pack is well made, robust and easy to handle... I'm sure I will get many years of trouble free use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and ideal Purchased 2 of these for our sons who enjoy going tramping. They are very, very happy with their packs. These are well made, sturdy, and have great features. They love that it has a detachable day pack too.
