I purchased this pack for a few reasons. I’m trying to get into better shape by rucking, I’d like to get into back packing, and I want to train up for the Expert Soldier Badge. This pack is far and away better than anything the Army has ever issued me. The harness system, when adjusted properly, holds the pack in just the right place on my back without a lot of movement. It’s distributes weight just right. It is very well made and quite durable. This is a very big pack. I got the XL because I anticipate needing the space for future activities, but the smaller Terminator pack should suit most folks just fine if they don’t anticipate needing to carry a lot.
I use the ruck for 12 miles and recce and couldn't find an issue with it. However if you don't have a need for shoving 80 plus lbs of crap in your ruck just go with the regular size terminator. The included fanny pack is huge and I use it instead of an assault pack alot of the time
Only Brand I'll Buy!! great quality, well thought out with large capacity. It's not my first Eberlestock pack and not my last!! Two thumbs up. Very pleased with my purchase.
I originally bought an REI backpack but it barely held anything and a stray brach or stick would tear the cheap material it was made out of. The Terminator XL, is sooo rugged, tough, and has so much carry capacity and is more comfortable. Would definitely purchase again, wish it came in the gray color or the olive drab though.
I have been waiting over 2 years to purchase this pack, finally on sale in my price range and it was worth the wait. It's a great pack and worth the price. The quality is unmatched in the industry.
Military quality with a professional look. This is by far the best pack I have owned. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for.
Its well designed but I feel like there could be something else done with this platform.. Like giving more organizing space
Exactly what I was hoping it to be will be doing Business again
Have had this pack for 5 yrs already. Still good as new. Have done multiple hikes, camping and use it for scouting and hunting. Pack has never let me down as I can fit everything I need and then some. A solid quality pack that will NEVER let you down.
