This pack (12 in) is the perfect size and very well designed. Fantastic quality, fits well, everything you’ll ever need in a daypack. Has everything you need, exceeded my expectations in all aspects. The rolltop makes a huge difference, there when you need it. Rolled up and out the way when you don’t. Unmatched quality and workmanship. Extremely happy with it.
This pack is great for the daily commute and has extra space when I need it. It is a nice weekend pack for an excursion into the woods. I have had it for three years and I know I won"t wear it out ever!
I got the upgraded straps, and the sternum strap. The bag sits very well, built like a tank! Would recommend!
Have put this bag through 1.5yrs of archaeological survey from Oregon to Puerto Rico, spring rains on the Great Plains, Snow in the Cascades, to rainy & cold Appalachia... It has met, and continues to succeed exceptionally well in ever changing worldy and weatherly conditions. My decision on this pack was based on the quality provided by Frost River on their end, and care to keep this pack going through the elements on my end; which means tending to canvas and leather applications to keep it up to facing any and all conditions. I wanted a pack to care for that will last. No mesh pockets that rip up in brambles, straps that wear through, buckles that break and zippers that catch in dirt. This pack will last. None of those problems exist anymore. I'm 100% satisfied with ordering the Arrowhead, 100% satisfied with their construction of it, and that satisfaction increases exponentially each time I apply canvas and leather conditioner to keep this pack hauling survey gear anywhere, knowing it will last quite a long time.
Great bag......freaking amazing .....Frost river bags are the industry benchmark for quality packs. I've got isle royal I bought several years ago and heavily used. I just got the roll top for a trip and it's very convenient for carrier on air travel and it fits as carry on bag. Or use it for a bushcraft bag.
