  • Reviewers noted that the bag's lid can either be raised to create extra storage space or pulled down tight around the top of the pack like a close-fitting weatherproof hood.
  • Users also said that it has a top compression strap with plenty of lengths to accommodate a bulky rope underneath.

  • hat, gloves, shades, camera, snacks.
  • They also indicated that its frame can be removed and bent to give a degree of tailored fit.

  • According to those who used it, the backpack's sternum strap, fully elastic, helps hold the shoulder straps in place while allowing chest and arms to flex freely.
  • Many users pointed out that it has an excellent form-hugging fit, and helps transfer some of the weight off the shoulders.
