cwoods17Durable but unorganized

Voted 3/5

This is a really durdable pack. It endures a lot of abuse every day at school, though I'd rather use it in the mountains, where it works great. I wish it had more internal organization, but everything is really accessable, which is nice. Unless you cinch down the compression straps tightly on the pack before you put it on, the load will settle on the bottom. The shoulder straps are really comfortable.
The strap connecting the two zippers snapped, but I tied some shoe laces there and like it better now.

Update: The shoulder straps have lost a lot of their cushyness and the waterproofing on the top zipper is coming off.
