Thanks for making an excellent pack, I read numerous reviews and descriptions of various packs and decided on the this pack, I can fit all my camping gear into it. It has quality throughout. I'm really pleased with this Lewis and Clark pack, Its pricey but worth it and even better its made in the USA! Thank you Frost River for USA made quality products.
This pack has been great for gear intensive trips to the BWCAW. I've been able to fit all of my gear plus the Nemo Bug Out Shelter and it carries extremely well. I line my pack with a sleeping pad and partially inflate it to give it structure and it has been great on long portages without issue. I originally didn't pack the hipbelt, but it actually does help enough to make it worth it so I've started using it more and more.
Overall very impressed and enjoy the pack.
