Backpack Gear Test

I have been very pleased with the Whitney 95 backpack. I find it is a product that has grown on me. The more I use it the better I become at using it. The comfort amazes me even in hot humid weather. Getting at the items I need quickly and easily is very convenient. I have used it a lot and it still looks like it did when I first got it.
