Backpack Gear Test

The bag has plenty of space for multi-day trips and is not too heavy on its own. Moreover the pack is comfortable to carry. The padding is good and the adjustable straps are easy enough to adjust on the fly.

Backpack Gear Test

Despite its load carrying capacity, the Sentinel is versatile in the sense that, when necessary, I was able to carry a full, heavy load but I was also able to carry smaller, light loads for day trips and shorter hikes.

Backpack Gear Test

Despite its load carrying capacity, the Sentinel is versatile in nature. With the exterior pocket, the lid pocket, the zippered lower compartment and the top compartment, gear is readily accessible.
