    Great for a camping/hiking/survival pack!!!I have had it for about half a year and it has worked great. I hammock camp and this pack has held every thing that I want and more.What I like about it is that it’s very comfortable when packed up all the way, it doesn’t hurt at all.(I carry a lot)The sleeping bag compartment is perfect, I use my Teton sports leef +20 and it fits great.I would highly recommend this pack.

    I just received my pack this week. I’ve loaded and unloaded the pack a few times trying to tweak my load for a 3 day 63 mile Florida Trail hike from Lake Okeechobee to Hobe Sound (Ocean to Lake Trail). The materials all appear very durable. I thought the stitching in some areas would be reinforced a little better like another pack I own, but it still seems solid and I don’t see any potential issues. The zippers are strong, the sleeping bag compartment at the bottom is roomy, and the waist belt and shoulder straps are comfy. The main compartment, side pockets, and pockets in the top rain flap are very functional. The two aluminum stiffeners are sturdy and well placed. The rain cover is completely integrated, rip-stop material, lined for waterproofing, and seems perfectly suitable for a torrential downpour.I have one complaint. My waist is 32 inches, but I have the waist belt cinched tightly. This is kind of concerning. You can lose weight during a long trip and may not have a lot of room for adjustments. If you have less than a 30 inch waist this probably won’t work for you. Fortunately, I have a 30″-31″ waist when I am working out regularly and doing a lot of cardio, so it should be fine for me. Unfortunately, my recent workouts are limited to carrying a baby throughout the day and heavy reps curling 12oz IPAs:)I’ll update my review if I run into any issues after three days of hard use.UPDATE 02/07/2018: The pack held up like a champ. It was extremely comfortable. The waistband and shoulder straps felt great. My only wish is it were a pound lighter, but it’s just fine for me. I can’t justify paying double the price when I don’t have the chance to hike long distances regularly. I’m very glad I bought this pack!

    I recieved this pack a few days ago and to be honest I was concerned that it wouldn’t adjust to fit me. I am 6’3″ tall and didn’t see many reviews about Tall people. This pack more than adjusted to fit me, it had room to spare. I actually have it one notch below the max. The great thing about this pack is that my wife (5’4″) can also wear the same pack and for that reason we will be ordering a second pack.Besides the height, I felt this pack was more than adequate for capacity. I read many reviews about the small sleeping bag pouch, but I was able to fit my summer bag(+40), tent, stakes, AND tent rainfly in the pouch with room to spare. I will just strap my tent poles on the side, which has straps specifically for that purpuse. I do have a LARGE winter bag which would be snug, but I would definitly strap that on the outside with all the extra straps this pack has. This pack has hidden pockets just about everywhere, which is nice when you have lots of gear you want to get at without unpacking everything.I started stuffing all my things in this pack to see what kind of balance it had and it felt great and was very sturdy. I posted a picture on here to see it on a tall person, but please note only had it 3/4 full. I will try and update this post after I use it on the Lake Superior Hiking Trail this fall.Let be honest though, the real reason I bought this pack was for the price… wow great pack for the money. You could almost compare this pack to a $300+ pack from REI. I hope that Teton keeps the price low and they will sell a TON of these.
