Arc'teryx Arrakis 65 Packis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat pack.Great pack all around. I have a tendency to want one item to do the jobs of many items which makes me inherently picky about gear. I really struggled with the price of this pack but I am really happy I purchased it. I have used it for both day and overnight backpacking. It is way big for a day trip but I like the idea of carrying a little weight on day trips to make sure I am not surprised when the overnight trip comes. I also use this for day and overnight splitboarding trips and it has worked incredibly well. It also doubles as my backpack/stowage bag for my packraft. I live in Kodiak which makes Seattle weather look like Arizona and I have never had any wetness inside this pack. I leave it outside the tent because there is no reason to bring it in. I woke up one morning to find the bag had sagged and collected water over the side zippers. Not one drop made it inside. This bag can really take a beating and will keep things dry so long as you don't put it under water. You pay for what you get and this bag is proof of it.
