How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
100 percent satisfaction! I'm not military, and not using it for military or tactical purposes. I purchased this bag to perform as a backpacking bag even though this isnt recommended for that intention and is about the opposite of weight elimination. I got this bag to comfortably carry extra weight and make backpackong a more luxurious experience. I am very satisfied with this purchase and the bag is more than I could of expected. The quality of the material and the design of the straps, pockets and zippers is flawless! This bag is expensive and that was the only con I have so far on this bag, but not enough to take away from the 5 start quality of the pack and the accessories I purchased for it. Thanks Eberlestock! I will always send my friends and family through you guys for our outdoor needs!
I've had my pack for two years now. It was super close, but extended all the way out (and with some adjustments to the flex stays) this bag works very well for me. I combined it with a super spike duffel for my sleeping bag and pad and am now completely self contained with everything I need to backpack/leave civilization and never return haha
The quality and thoughtfulness put into all aspects of design/production are greatly appreciated (they remind me of hennessey hammocks, another tall person favorite). Keep up the good work!
I'm a hear freak so I was immediately drawn to this brand and this pack. After receiving it and taking a look at it I was overwhelmed with the amount of storage options and what applications this pack could be used for. Along with a A4SS Tactical Weapon Carrier, this is now my multiday camping/Hiking pack. Love this pack and highly recomend this pack!
I briefly (and thoroughly) examined the pack and regretted not getting it for myself. I have F4 Terminator pack myself.
The only downside was the pack didn't come with a rain cover. Maybe I missed it.
Excellent pack, great buying experience. The video walk through of all the features was a great help in making my decision.
