Have not gotten to take this out on any long range trips yet, but has been stellar on all of the ruck runs I have done so far. The most comfortable pack I have used, easy to adjust and plenty of room. Can't wait to load it up and take it out for real!
The Skycrane ll is a great bag that is full of top notch craftmanship and well thought out. The top flap and bottom flaps need to be 4" wider on each side to more securely close the bag once it is full of gear. The side bags have a great cover and I suggest using that as the modal for the new top and bottom covers. The side bag covers are the right size and have a top with fabric making a turn down over the bag that covers the whole thing. If I put small stuff in the main bag it will definitely fall out due to the bottom flap being too small.
I just did an 11 mile ruck with 55 lbs in the bag and it was awesome, the belt is great and the shoulder straps are easy to adjust.
Keep up the good work!
This thing is a beast! the side tubes perfectly fit my litefighter tent, sleeping pad and woobie. the other tube has my cook system, MRE, and water for cooking. Having the ability to then dump that extra weight once camp is established and just running the inner little brother is a HUGE plus. So far I'm very impressed!
Everything about the Skycrane II is intuitive and overbuilt. Not sure what else you could do to this one. Seems like it was engineered by a Formula One team for the Special Forces.
I’ve been using this for rucking and for work. You can fit a ton of gear and clothes. This pack makes it a breeze to keep everything organized. Unmatched quality. Will never buy a pack from another brand again.
This will likely be the last line of packs I buy. I love the modularity of it. It does everything I need it to do when I need it.
I just broke my pack in climbing 3 miles to the top of a nearby mountain. This bag is exactly what I was looking for.
More expensive than my first car
Gets the job done!
Great pack, finally have room for everything I do wish Elberstock would include a rain cover and a sticker with the purchase.
