- You Will Not be Disappointed!Review by Al P

It looks like the new version of this pack has a few extra features that are certainly worthwhile. The most notable, is the side water bottle pouch. That missing on my version and made it a bit difficult to pack for my overnight trek. Looks like Gossamer has added that feature now though.
I also use this pack as my daily carry to university. 9-months in of almost constant "5-days-a-week" use and no structural issues. I even carry my 17" Lenovo laptop in the back sleeve designed for the sleeping pad/frame! Fits like a glove.
I would recommend this pack in a heartbeat and have been impressed with it enough to seek out Gossamer Gear as a return customer. (Posted on 9/8/16)
- BUY IT, Great packReview by Jeff. S
Quality Price Value
Delivery: Fast, 3 days from order to door.
Description: Sold me, but really was a bit modest about this pack.
Quality: Excellent, Materials are some of the best fabrics, wears well.
Fit: Like a glove, just the right size. Holds needed items, vest, water.
Function: Draw string draw it a dream come true for me. I'm not a big fan of zippers. This bag has one on an interior pocket.. Exterior pockets are deep, holds a liter easy each side. Rear pocket is huge.
Pros: Draw string top, Shoulder Straps are vented, large deep pockets, light, great fit.
Cons: Only comes in gray. A green version would be nice.
Recommendation: Change the back seat pad to an egg crate seat. Had one and it fit perfect, think it will offer a little venting.. I would also change the draw string clamp to a lighted one. Experience says a light there will be put to good use. And a whistle buckle on the sternum strap as an option.
Rating: I give this pack a 10 out of 10. I nearly lived out of a pack like this and this has features I never thought of adding. Very well designed for its function.. Not bulky or full of zippered pockets. For my needs this pack is a perfect fit.
To Buy or not to buy : I say BUY this baby today, its a great value, excellent quality and backed by the excellent reputation of Gossamer Gear providing high quality light weight gear. (Posted on 7/27/16)
