Quality Material and Workmanship.

Most backpacks on the market are internal frame so not a lot of choices in external frames for us who like them.

Spacious sleeping bag compartment- no more digging to the bottom of the bag when setting camp.

I purchased this pack for a thru hike on the AT. Been testing it and so far its held up great. The pack has lots of room and has been designed well. The material and workmanship are outstanding. The only flaw I found was on the frame. One of the 2 end-caps on the bottom of the frame came out. That however created a better idea. I took two wooden dowels and two hard rubber hand grips and attached them to the bottoms of the frame. Now the frame sits higher, keeping the pack off the ground; leans up against a wall better without slipping down or falling over; makes the pack easier to grab things out of cause it sits higher; and best yet...you can use the handles to shove your pack on easier by yourself.

I was surprised about an hour ago when this showed up (wasn't expecting it until Wed.). There are no instructions that comes with it (that I found yet) to show what needs to be adjusted for different heights BUT, wow, what a backpack. High quality material, coated aluminum frame, pockets, pockets and more pockets. There is room APLENTY in this thing. I've been using the box store version of what they call a backpack but OMG what a difference! I've never had an external frame pack and this, to me anyways, is like going from a Kia to a Cadillac with the options. I can't wait until it gets cooler (yes, it does get cold in Florida!) to give this thing a chance to impress me more. I know this isn't a "have used it and here's what I think about it" review but I'm impressed with it so far and had to say something. I plan on updating when I have actually had it in the woods.

UPDATE MARCH 6, 2013: Been using this pack for a few trips in the woods and it is holding up very well and would gladly recommend this pack to anyone. I can carry what I need and as far as the sleeping bag compartment goes, I have my sleeping bag AND an inflatable pillow from IKEA in there. The sleeping bag is an Alpine Microlite rated at 45 degrees. 80" long X 34" wide. Weighs 1 lb 14 oz. and stuffs into a sack 12" long x 21" diameter. Bought it from Sports Authority. I am 5'11 and 245 lbs.

This is my first external frame backpack and with my son coming just around the corner I didn't have a lot of $$$ to spend. That being said this pack arrived very quickly and was in a big cardboard box securely. When I opened the box I couldn't believe my eyes. The pack was very light weight and came with just enough side pockets for me to carry some extra books for extra reading material in the woods. It also came with a rain cover, which I'm sure with other packs you have to order separately. I recently purchased a tent that also fits in the main part of the pack, with my lunch and mess kit (very roomy). The only component I haven't tried out is the part where you can strap in your sleeping bag (mostly b/c I haven't found a sleeping bag worth buying yet). All in all this is a great pack and I have hiked at least 30 miles in it since I bought it only a month ago and it is very comfortable while on the trail. As one reviewer noted its almost as if it forces better posture because it seems to make you stand up straight, which for me (a slouch) is a big positive.

Highly recommended.

These backpacks are an awesome value. I honestly don't think you can do better for the price.

I started out buying one for myself - the 50L Foxhound. I got it and was impressed! It's very adjustable (I'm a 5'7"/120lb. woman, and it's just right) and well made. I have since bought two of these 65L Bobcats. One for my partner, and one for his brother. They are both around 5'10" - 6' but one guy is broad shouldered and the other is a bean pole. The packs fit both of them perfectly.

The shoulder straps adjust laterally so that if you're especially broad or narrow shouldered, it will still fit you. It comes with extra pins for adjustments or replacements, also. The empty pack weighs right around 5.5 lbs., and has several smaller external pockets to keep food convenient while hiking. There's a cloth divider inside the main compartment - the lower zipper on the outer front opens to the "bottom" internal compartment - which you can fit a compressed bag or a tent into, and there are gaps in the corners of the pack where it doesn't connect. So it's sewn into the front, back, and sides, but has spaces for long items. This is great, because tent poles can fit in the pack vertically, and as long as you pack something on the divider as a base, you can take out the tent or bag or whatever you put in the bottom half, and all of your stuff in the top half is left pretty much undisturbed.

The pack cinches down to the frame at the waist band, so that the weight of the pack is carried on your hips, not your shoulders. This is great when the pack is heavy! There's a mesh piece that keeps it off of your sweaty back while you hike, and there are little flaps where you can feed out your camelback-type water tube.

For anyone walking the trails, exploring the open wilderness or carrying heavy loads, this pack is perfect. Besides being fully adjustable, the frame allows sufficient airflow for comfort in the hottest climates and the padding allows a heavy load to be carried easily. Due to the nature of the pack resting higher on ones back a good upright posture is maintained making walking in an upright position easy. For those wanting a pack for thick bush, and off the trail adventures - Bare in mind that the pack sits a good deal higher and you will need to take your time carving a path through the scrub at around head height to make way for the pack. Tired arms are a small price to pay for the benefits this pack offers. Highly satisfactory.

In short:
Great, sturdy design. Strong frame allows airflow and keeps a half filled pack from flopping about.
Fully adjustable. Kind of pack a teen could use well into adulthood.
included rain guard.
Spacious sleeping bag compartment- no more digging to the bottom of the bag when setting camp.
65 litres of space is more than enough for a 2/3 day hike.

Final Tip: Before buying make sure to research the pros and cons of external/internal frame packs. Although this pack is a winner in my eyes a customer may be just as disappointed to find it doesn't suit their individual needs (no fault of the pack of course!)
