V90 Battleship Stress Test
Tons of room. The one drawback I have is that the Front zippered flaps look less durable that I expected and with the molle loops on them ( I say loops because it’s not webbing) do not appear to be able to hold much weight. I would be wary of trying to put a couple of quick access molle bags on them. Having said that, I have not put anything through the molle loops to see. With full load-out, the pack feels great once it’s on your back and incredibly light.
If you’re reading all the reviews you can trying to find a pack you can fit everything you need in this is the one!
I have been using this pack for almost 3 years now and it is the foremost pack among every other packs I got for backpacking, mountaineering and camping trips for all year round, 4 season. It does carry the heavy load comfortable, especially on mountain terrain. I love the front loading access, separate compartments and outer pockets. Its got a lot of grapple straps on the outside for strapping down sleeping mat, tent, tarp, outlayers, shells for weather protection and so on. The mesh padding on the harness is awesome. It cools you down even in scorching hot summer.
I did modify the pack for my needs. I cut off the lid and made it into a detachable shoulder bag for scouting around camps. I also had to do some work to load lifters to line them up around my clavicles and to get good 45° load lifter angle.
It is the best large volume pack for versitility, durability and the money!$$$
I love this pack. Its large enough to fit all my winter camping gear and more. Being in a colder region, i needed a large pack that was tough durable, and dependable. This pack has exceeded my expectations. The weight wasnt too bad for its size and capacity and fit was great. I like the versatility of its design with lots of options to cinch items down and storage. Yet it is also quite simple at the same time. Some packs, even tho they the same capacity, cant hold as much as others. Or the weight is a lot more because of the pockets,layout, and design. that is the main reason i decided on the battleship. I cant say enough about it. I would highly recommend it and Eberlestock in general.
Great pack, holds up well in the a jungle too!
