Fantastic backpack. Absolutely love it.

Heavy duty and comfortable, not too heavy. I use struggle to fill a 40L pack during the summer but this is a little tight for multi-day winter backpacking. Doable but needs a minimalist gear list to minimize volume. Potentially needs some outside carry for bulky items.

Awesome light weight pack

Used this to hike Section H of the PCT this summer. The bugs were horrible but the pack was a dream. Super light weight and carried everything I could ask for and more.

Perfect Pack

This pack met all my needs: an ultralight, backcountry pack with one main waterproof compartment for camp and a big outer for easy access, lots of places to strap down gear, and big enough for multi day adventures, but small enough to keep things tight and remind me to pack smart. Can’t wait to try this in the winter too.

Good 1st attempt at a touring ski pack. Hoping for improvements on version 2

Shoulder straps and hip belt are too narrow to carry weight comfortably. Hip belt uses 1 strap unlike the unbound which uses 2. 2 hip belt straps would allow for better hip conformation and comfort. Pack needs load lifters to keep skis/splitboard secure when on pack. Skis add a lot of weight and leverage high up on the pack.
