delmarcoGreat Classic Style Alpine Pack! 5 Stars!

Voted 5/5

I love this pack because of what it lacks. Since the 1990s the backpack design department have over engineered backpacks to the point where 99% of backpacks on the shelves are useless to general all around backpacking. When I was 14 my first backpack was a Lowe Contour 90+10. Over a 10 year period I was able to use that one pack for a few Outward Bound semester courses, Sailing and Canoe Expeditions, A Summer Appalachian Trail Thru Hike, Winter Snow Shoe and Ski trips and many weekender trips, even carrying textbooks for grad school and emergency grocery shopping at one point. Now I have 5 Backpacks in my closet for various different things each with different technologies from sweat ventilation, suspension systems, ski/snowboard lashments, aqua lungs, etc...
Long gone from the commercial shelves is the classic "do it all" alpine pack. This Millet pack resurrects what the genuine outdoor adventure is supposed to be. It isn't designed to mute your whining or make your outdoor experience "luxurious" but it is designed to last a long time and basically do ANYTHING you throw at it pertaining to carrying any type of load during anywhere your adventure takes you. Best of all is there is NO silly iPod pocket!
