Product Description

The Cortez is a nice fitting stable pack. With its shoulder and waistband adjustments I find that it dose not sway or bounce the way other packs I've used have done. I have used this pack for long day hikes and 4 day backpacking trips. The manufacturers site shows the cortez sells for $120.00 but I only paid $98.00. In my opinion this pack is a good bang for your buck.
