Absolutely amazing pack and great quality worth every penny beats the hell out of all these hippy tree hugger BS companies that have lost sight of what people want.
I bought the V90 Battleship recently for a trip to the Adirondack mountains and was not disappointed. Absolutely loved the pack from the moment I pulled it out of the box - from the materials used to the overall construction it was obviously a high quality pack. Just got back from the trip and I loved every minute of hiking with this pack - after some adjustments on the fly due to user error. The separate compartments with the front panels were key in allowing me to access anything I needed quickly and made packing up each morning a breeze. The size of the pack allowed me to live comfortable for 3 nights in the mountains, even after taking on a bulky bear canister. I wish I had one of these when I was in the service!
As soon as I receive and put the product to use I would be more than happy to review the product
Some user feedbacks on V90 Battleship from Eberlestock.
I think I have been using this backpack for 3 years. It's a great pack. I love the large volume, seperate compartments and the frame system for carrying heavy loads. There's a lot to like AND there were some errors too I didn't like.
The width of the shoulder straps are not same. The left shoulder is 6 cm(2.362 inches) and the width of the right shoulder strap is about 7 cm(2.756 inches). It's a production flaw but is it really big of a deal? Not so much. I feel no difference on my shoulders.
I think for shorter torso users, the Eberlestock shoulder harness on this pack doesn't create good load lifter angle. (I don't even think my torso is much shorter than any male grown ups. FILBE and ALICE pack fit me fine.) So I had to modify the shoulder harness to get good 45° load lifter angle by using extra straps and buckles laying around.
The shoulder straps are small, thinly padded. They are relatively comfortable and of course 90% of the weight is going to rest on your pelvis but for the utmost comfort, it should had been more padded and a little wider.
For the massive size of the pack, the shoulder straps are too small. They are like G string for an elephant. 😂
I hope the lumbar pad on this pack had been thicker like the one on my Halftrack pack. The pack tends to slide down to my bums with heavy loads so I hooked up additional non slip pad for the lumbar region.
And the lid of the pack was not detachable unlike any other backpacking packs out there. I cut off the excess material and replaced buckles and hooked up a strap. It's a great go bag and works just fine as lid of the pack. 👍
Molle webbing got narrower and less robust. Weight remains the same as the older model.
