Backpack Gear Test

Despite working very well, the Lakota is not perfect and has a few things I’d change. The flap separating the sleeping bag compartment from the upper portion of the main compartment is just a flap of fabric secured with a few hooks. If care isn’t taken in packing the upper 2/3 of the pack, small items can easily slip down into the sleeping bag area.

It is a lightweight and comfortable pack. With multiple exterior attachment points the pack is ideal for day hiking.

It seems to be built with quality in mind and there is plenty of room for all my gear. I will have more on how it does on an adventure in about a month.
