“Wow, very impressive with tons of useful features surprising to find on a pack in the $50 range. Perfect daypack size or maybe an overnighter for a minimalist/ultralight camper. Fits very comfortably and easily adjusts. Super impressed with all the features and quality of construction and design. This will likely become my favorite pack once I rack up a few more miles on it.”
