For the price it's great. I purchased the 75L deal and took it on a 5 day hike with 40 lb load baseweight. Hip support and airflow is good but the shoulder straps need more padding and should be wider.

+1 in this being a damn good deal. I have the Teton version (I'm convinced it's the same bag, just rebranded) and it's awesome for 1-2 day hikes. It's on the heavier side when you compare it to Osprey, but for this price and the actual real life usage of weekender-type hiking, this is perfect.

IMO The adjustable torso feature makes this bag awesome.

The amazon warehouse ones are oos, but a new one for $40 might be the better deal anyway.

I have the 75L version. It will work for backpacking, but I would probably buy a different pack if I was going on a tough backpacking trip.

My wife borrowed a high-end Osprey pack for the trip we went on. I tried it on and it was a lot more comfortable than mine. But that's what you'd expect for a 3X price difference. The big problem with the Amazon pack was that the shoulder straps wouldn't stay put. It's frustrating to walk with a heavy load having to adjust the straps every 15 minutes.

If money is an option I would check Craigslist for a used Gregory or Osprey. You might spend a 100 but you won't regret it. Go to REI and size yourself.

I bought one for a tough 5 day trip, over 40lbs of equipment. I regretted I didn't go with Osprey, definitely will buy one for the next trip. But for 1-3 day trips or for something really light this Amazon rebranded pack would work fine. Straps aren't padded enough, they ride up or down under weight, especially if you climb or run down. Chest strap tore too. Your back and shoulders WILL hurt a lot during hard hike with this pack. This inexpensive pack isn't made for serious hiking. So if you're going for a tough trip, do yourself a favor and buy an Osprey, even if it's used.

I bought this and the separator between the bottom compartment and the top had ripped. Terrible quality.

If you have an REI or similar store that can size you for a proper fit for a back pack I would highly recommend it.

I own this pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000F34..._lig_dp_it which looks very similar. its great but you need to know how to adjust the backpack for a proper fit so you feel comfortable in it. It has done a great job for me.

I ended up buying another backpack since my goal now is to buy ultra light gear. But lighter means more money. so go figure.

But I do recommend this pack.

If you're on a budget, this should be fine for getting a couple miles down the trail to camp. It is NOT appropriate to take more than a few miles out, or on a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail or something

Just be aware when you're buying stuff in this price range that it's more likely to be heavier, more uncomfortable and/or prone to failure than $150+ backpacks, and can put you in a really bad position if you're in the middle of nowhere and have a problem.

Have two of these packs (1 75l and 1 65l) and it was the normal price to pick this up at$ 41-43~. How does front page land normal these things.
