Rated 5 out of 5★ by CPTaMerica1 Former Military & Avid Outdoorsman gives it a 10++ WOW! This is for real. First...Coleman, you NEED TO ADD side tie outs for poles and etc. & also a tension strap for towels/MREs and etc. Other than that, this carries all the gear you could need for a day or overnight outing. I carry my famous brand "TABLET" in a water proof case, a solar charger, GPS & beacon, a popular satcom device paired to my famous brand "smart phone" same as above, water, water filter, mylar tent shelter for two, rain gear, strobe, small med pack, six MREs or up to nine other meals, knife, duct tape, sanitizer, towel, famous brand stove that also charges usb devices in an outside pocket, three day coast card emergency rations, extra batteries, saw, duct tape, toilet paper, fire starter, rescue mirror, flashlight, 2400 degree lighter, can of butane, compass, shovel, bear deterrent spray, binoculars, gloves, waterproof vid camera, hand crank radio with NOAA and USB charger, bear bell, bathing suit, waterproof hat and then I hang a plastic pan for gold panning on the back. This pack carries very well and does not wear you out. It is tough enough for mountain use and as you can see it holds in excess of 25 lbs very reliably. I have waited to write this review until today as I wanted to give this pack a five time trial. Not one problem so far! Save your money over more expensive brands and choose this one. Well done indeed. Of course, this is also good for college students as it has the padded laptop area and internal pockets for mp3 players and other small school essentials. Tough as nails! 02/11/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by nm156 Great backpack I bought one of these for myself to go on a Cub Scout camp out. We went on a 4 mile hike on a very hot day. The water bladder held plenty of water with no leaking. I was also able to carry other supplies in the other compartments. The pack adjusts well and is comfortable to wear. I liked it so much I bought this one for my son to replace his hydration pack which had no additional compartments. 08/03/2012
