kwagGreat pack

Voted 5/5

I've used it mostly for overnighters, but I used it for a 3nighter over the summer. Its a small pack, but that forces you to consider every item you put in it. It was a great upgrade from a big external-frame pack that alone weighs 3lbs more. I bought a Granite Gear toughsack (a long one) to put stuff I couldn't fit in it on the sides, the side straps can fit a full length Z-lite pad or a thermarest. Overall a great pack for the price. All you boy scouts should upgrade to this!

Update: Best part that i forgot to mention is how adjustable the shoulder straps are, I'm about 5'6" and my friend who is 6'8" also uses this pack!
