Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unstable The pack lists to one side or the other and unable to adjust the straps to stabilize it. The shoulder straps hurt and the chest strap is too high up, almost on my neck. After 3 trips I donated it, wouldn't recommend it for anymore than a 5 mile a day hike. Felt OK trying it on but 10-15 miles on the trail...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from hopefull, but disappointed bought two 50L external frame packs. Same problem with both...the chest strap comes off the bead that it's attached to and it's nearly impossible to put it back on. also, on one of the packs, on the left shoulder pad where the chest strap attaches to the shoulder strap, the material has ripped. the pack still has the tags on it from the store. it has a lot of potential to be a great product if the material was more durable. I like the pocket placement and the large inside space with the divider. I returned them, took the money and bought a Gregory backpack from a local outfitter. I liked the idea of the external frame, but can't trust the durability/quality. Don't need something failing and causing problems on the trail. when I get back I'll try to find a pack that I can put on the external frame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic buckles are garbage I have had this pack for two weeks. I do like all the compartments it is very easy to stay organized, however 80% of your weight is carried in the waist strap. I could not get the waist strap tight enough to bear the load of my pack, I could tighten them up a little bit then it was impossible, with that being said carrying a load for a couple days makes it very strenuous and painful in your shoulders. I recently went on a two day 23 mile hike, worse two days of my life due to this pack. I had to remove my nylon webbing belt out of my pants and run it through the waist strap to tighten it up enough to get back to my car. Wouldn't be a bad pack if the plastic buckles where made with a little more quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Frame Design; Poor Stitching Nothing has ever been half as good as the MOLLE rucks or even the old TA-50 rucks issued by the Army. I only had a enough stuff in this bag so that it and its contents weighed exactly 60 pounds. At about an average of 2 uses per week it lasted maybe a total of 40 miles before one day it literally started coming apart at the seams in the middle of a work out. No complaints about the frame design or the material these are both pretty solid. The stitching at the seams is the problem. I am trying to find the warranty and see if I can exchange or get it repaired since it was kind of expensive and the frame is very sturdy I do not want to scrap it just yet. The only other problem I've had is that the tightening strap between the two shoulder straps that crosses over your chest is connected to either shoulder strap with some weird version of a ball and socket joint where the "socket" is a small plastic "c" shaped tube and the "ball" is some of the folded over material from the shoulder strap itself. This is a poor design for a strap that is meant to be tight and it pops off constantly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my overnight backpack A good intermediate pack. I like an external frame pack for overnights, lots of room on top to add a sleeping bag tent or anything else. lighter frames start to get pricey quick. Again, good middle of the road price/performance. It is VERY comfortable on all day hikes. Lots of strap adjustments to make it fit just right with minimal floppy excess straps. The pockets on the belt are great. they are a nice size and easy to get to and easy to open and close with the pack on. The only down side is that there is no pocket for a water bag (camel pack) and the water bottle pockets can not be reached without taking off the pack. I was aware of these before I bought it so it's ok by me.
