Rated4out of5byhiking loverfromAwsome packThe only complaint I have about this pack is no port for a drinking tube if you use a hydration system. This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I packed 50 lbs of gear in it and it did'nt feal at all like I had that much weight. It is very comfy, and easy to make adjustments. The fact that it has no sleeping bag compartment is no problem at all, It is very easy to load,unload and has plenty of room. Love this pack!

Rated4out of5byAdam591fromA Great Pack from a Great CompanyI use this pack for just about anything. I pack it instead of a suitcase for trips, just so i can laugh at all of the people whose arms are full of random stuff while i still have a full range of movement.
Anyway, it's a pack worthy of Kelty's name. It's durable, lightweight, and the packability is amazing. Almost all of the pack is able to be utilised in some way, and there are plenty of little hidey-holes for stuff. I sacrifice weight and size for comfort, but I still have a nice amount of room left in the pack, though it took a bit of practice for me to learn the right way to do so.
I really don't have any complaints about the pack, it will haul anything and adjust to anything and any person as long as you can pack it right.

Rated5out of5byKevin the BackpackerfromPerfect!I use this backpack to do several backpacking trips every year. Each trip is about 3-5 days and is your standard backpacking trip of moving everyday. I was shocked at how much stuff this backpack could hold and it was all fairly easy to get too. It has lots of padding and was as comfortable as a backpack could get

Rated2out of5byCrushfromI ended up returning itThe pack wore out very fast - the mesh pockets ripped, and the material wore out and started to fray. The many pockets were nice for organization, but I really missed the separate sleeping bag compartment.

Rated3out of5byD NessfromGood pack for tall peopleOnly fits tall people, and there isn't a seperate bottom compartment for your sleeping bag. There also isn't a hole for a camel pack, so you have to stick it in the front pouch and leave the zipper undone a little. Other than that it's a great pack and an even better price. It has great ventalation so my back doesn't get all sweaty, and the straps are comfortable. I think if I was to buy another one I'd look around a little more first but will be keeping this one.
