V90 Battleship Stress Test
I've been using Eberlestock packs since 2010 when I was deployed to the Southern Philippines. I started with a Halftrack Backpack which I used as a medical pack. Even though it would have been nice to have individual packs or things I could have linked inside the pack it worked great because it is durable as hell and you can put it through anything! I still have that back and use it as a bolt bag for my medical gear.
Even though it's a military pack, I decided to buy the V90 Battleship as my hiking/camping back because I know how tough they are. I've packed this up with gear and food and hiked 10 miles back into the Uinta Mountains for days and I've never had an issue with it. You won't find a better product! I'm planning on buying S27 Little Trick to use as my every day carry while I finish my master's degree here in the next two weeks or so. Just have top pay off Christmas first. Trust me though, if you are on the fence, don't be, you will never regret buying from Eberlestock.
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!$$$
