It is a versatile pack that carries load comfortably. The good suspension system and the large packing capacity makes the bag favorable to most.

Backpack Gear Test

I really like the versatility of the Axiom pack and I will continue to use it far after this test is concluded. It has assisted to making my backpacking trips enjoyable and comfortable. As much as I don’t like the set up for my hydration bladder, I have found myself to be quite happy with carrying the collapsible water bottles instead.
