Honestly, for any combat trade or even hiking/camping amateur, would 100% recommend.

This bag is my first non-issued military ruck but I can confidently say I will never go back to the MOLLE ruck. The only thing I regret is that I stuck with the issued crap so long.

J79 Does it all.

This is the best and most versatile pack Ive ever owned. It can do everything I need it to and then some. Great material, construction and overall design Thanks Eberlestock!

Well the bag was purchased to substitute my camelbak BMF bag , needed something larger in capacity and equal if not better in quality and durability, definitely has tons of pockets/storage
I use my bag for backpacking and hunting/ I’m able to carry a lot of gear !!!!! Thanks to the massive use of molle webbing, I’m still exploring this bagpack and every time I go through it , I find a different pocket or strap or something I’m able to use to my advantage, would have loved if I came with a raincover included,

Sum bag

Being a sailor and fulltime liveaboard for 6 years , I sold my boat to venture from the salish seas in Canada and outbacks all the way home to Ireland and through north africa and more, I couldn't be happier , I trecked 55km along the beach to get last call on beer in morroco , essoaira to get 24 cans of cold brew and 4 bottles of rum before the liquor shops closed for ramadan, I'm happy to say this pack did just that and more. I've used it for work packing tools in and out of concrete jobs took it up mt.toubkal 4167 meters and still little to no wear and with ease...def best buy I made.

Very sturdy construction

The combo and packing options (I added the spike, gun scabbard and duffle) are pretty much endless. This pack is much more comfortable and balanced than my previous pack. Happy trails

Das beste Tragesystem - und der beste individuell erweiterbare Rucksack. Das Teil ist wie Lego.
Du erhältst zwei Rucksäcke und ein Waist Pack zu eine stolzen Preis - but so what - das ist das Teil wert. Dat Dingens sitz perfekt - für meinen Nutzen perfekt - du bist nich eingeschränkt in einer feste Tasche - egal wie gut diese ist. Daher mehr ein Transportsystem als ein starrer Rucksack - Prinzip Skycrane
Ein Mollesystem anstatt der Reißverschlüsse würde das nochmals verbessern.
