Summary:
This is the best all around pack EVER. From overnighter's, weekend trips to week long treks this pack carry it in comfort. I've used it portaging in Mignon Archipelago, Quetico and the Boundry Waters, backpacking the AT,PCT to the Southern Rockies to the Sonoran Desert. From 10lbs to 90+lbs its a treat to carry. In use for 15 years and will probably last another 15. It cannot be destroyed.

Summary:
This is a great pack, strong and durable. Holds up well, not showing any signs of wear and tear after summiting Mts Rainier, Hood, and Adams, plus several hikes through the Sawtooths. But, this is a heavy pack as pack weights go today. Only problem was a broken waist belt buckle during a hike in the Boulder/White Clouds, field expediency provided a temporary fix.

Customer Service:
Contacted CS about above mentioned buckle and had a new one in a week @ no charge.

Similar Products Used:
Gregory & Lowe, both good packs, the Gregory was ext frame, tough as nails, the Lowe is great for short over-nighters, just too small for extended trips.

Summary:
I have had this pack for a little over 7 years, numerous trips and besides the first trip, have not had a problem!! The first trip was just 3 days of hiking around my neighborhood with it loaded up to break it (and me) in. That got the waistbelt fitting and the rest of the straps and stays to where I needed them.
this is an excellent bag!! Swallows everything, great balance when done right. I can fit EVERYTHING inside, the tent, camp mat, sleeping bag, you name it!
I like the lower area seperated form the top, I can then place my down bag in a trashbag and load in any other things that HAVE to stay dry.
The detachable fanny pack works well for storing cooking supplies. Detach and you can have dinner started while you finish setting up camp.
Overall the best bag I have owned. I got it as a gift from an aunt that worked for TNF, so she knew what to get.

Customer Service:
Never had a problem
