All in all, the Grand Tour is a winner for me, and what I need it for. Although it will be staying at home though when I hit the trail in lieu of a more technical featured pack, I’ll be relying on it for my daily “stuff” hauler from here on out, and as burly and well-built as this pack is, I expect to be a long time!
