Rated 3 out of 5 by from needs improvement nice but the backpack strap mechanism is weak, it would loosen up on its own, found myself needing to tighten repeatedly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had to return it I'm not sure if this problem was specific to my bag, but the D-rings on the shoulder straps would slip all the way to the ends of the strap making the bag uncomfortable to wear. I wasn't overloading the bag either - just had a laptop, charger, and gym clothes. Otherwise the bag was useful - large single compartment that felt like the right size. The removable pouch on the inside was not in a good position though; it didn't allow easy access of the laptop compartment (I removed it and had it floating around the large compartment of the bag). REI damaged the bag out due to the straps and I was able to return the bag, but the bag wasn't damaged... the straps just slipped possibly due to poor design.

Why did REI increase this backpack price to $215? Every other retailer is selling this backpack for $175. I would like to buy this backpack from REI for $175.

Asked by: tstuard52
are you sure your comparing same bags? just about every retailer charges $215 for the ranger bag which is made in US, filson does have a similar field bag which is imported that retails for $175,
