Very great pack
Lightweight and functional
Shoulder straps a little bit thin
Everyone loves it, but it's a NO for me.
I did a lot of research before making this purchase. The pack looks well made. It looks like it would be durable. I like the roll top and cinch strap. None of this was a surprise to me......
What came as a surprise to me was the comfort was JUST NOT THERE. I loaded the pack with 17 pounds and wore it around the house, and back and forth a few times up and down my long driveway and I had some issues. The problem with the pack is that even when properly sized with the hip belt on your hips right where it should be, the main part of the pack hangs down lower than the hip belt and the pack was hitting my butt with every step. (I don't have a big butt, I'm 5'9" -150lbs). Within just a few minutes, I could already feel my glutes getting sore. So I had to return it. Now, I will say this....ENWILD CUSTOMER SERVICE IS BETTER THAN ANY I HAVE HAD SINCE I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER WHEN. (btw, I purchased the medium size)
Great lighweight pack
Adjustable waist belt, rolltop, can easily fit a bear canister.
Hard to access water bottles in the side pockets. Positioning the bottle diagonally helps for accessing but putting them back is hard.
Light pack with loads of volume
Lots of room, durable materials used, comfortable, you can remove the brain and clips completely, adjusting hip belt
Shoulder straps a bit stiff, side pockets difficult to access when the pack is on
Great Pack for Lightweight Setup
Good padding, great versatility with how you can setup the pack
Great pack, one limitation
Size, weight, ability to lighten pack weight by removing the lid and/or frame sheet, expandable 'collar' that turns an essentially 40 L pack into a 60L, like having two different size packs, , roll-top closure, ability to carry load comfortably, adjustable waist belt, a sternum strap that is actually useful, good looking pack. Very easy carry.
When expandable collar is fully deployed it can make weight off balance that effects hiking and river crossings since it is not under the frame's control.
I really like the weight and overall features. I just received the pack and was impressed with the construction as well. Looking forward to putting it to the test in August 2020, doing 40 miles on the wonderland trail (Mt Rainier). Got it at a good price as well!
Capability and capacity
Spot on with prior positive comments about large capacity, allowing max flex for packing. Ext compartment, adjustable hip belt, and overall fit and function are excellent. 6’2” 215lb, large frame fit well.
None. Look fwd to longer treks with the pack.
Roomy, light, versatile, great adjustability, carries weight well
Best pack ever
I got this pack to replace a much heavier one. I finally got to use it on a 18 mile trip along the Black mountain Crest trail and Mt. Mitchell trail the pack worked better than anticipated and fit very well the zipper on the brain was easily accessible while hiking and the straps across the back were very useful in strapping down my jacket. Love this pack!
The mesh pockets on the sides could be more easily accessible almost have to take the pack off to get out your water bottle
Love this pack!!!
-Extra light - Hip pockets - Detachable lid
None - I did a ton of research and this pack came out on top.
Solid sub 3 lb option that can still carry 20-25 lbs comfortably
Removable lid can drop some weight. Ample hip belt pockets are enough for phones etc. Nice stretchy back pocket is great for day layers and the such. Roll top closure on main compartment. V-strap on top gives the option to carry a bear canister externally. Adjustable hip belt length is really nice for folks with fluctuations in weight. Available in subtle colors
Unable to reach a water bottle in the side pockets while wearing the pack. The channels along your back are better than nothing, but not as vented as the trampoline style packs. No shoulder strap pockets. Like other Granite Gear packs I’ve owned, the shoulder straps are a bit stiff.
