It is a great pack for 37 bucks.

Padding doesnt seem extremely comfortable but i have yet to field test the pack so I may make an amendment.

After much deliberation and anguish, I decided to go with the Western Pack. I did have to pay shipping but we'll say I only paid 37 bucks to aid with the illusion. Firstly, this pack is not fancy. There are no embroidered logos, no racheting straps, no "biometeric comfort system". It has no internal frame (hence, the four stars). The plastic panel gives it some structure and helps it stay upright while packing. Otherwise, it is just a large backpack. On the other hand, it is monochromatic for those of you who prefer a more subdued look. Not everyone wants neon green and safety orange gear. As for the size, it....is....BIG. Hammock, underquilt, fleece liner, sleeping bag, thermals, water, food, poncho, gear, an entire military closed cell foam pad (you heard me); it swallowed them all. And when last minutes items were needed, there was plenty of room in the exterior pockets. Like a magicians hat or circus clown car, I just kept stuffing. If you were to attach gear to the outside (which you could easily do), you could pack the proverbial kitchen sink. As for durability, I feel bad for the guy whose pack burst at the seams. Mine, however, has been rugged and tough. I used force to stuff my sleeping bag into the lower compartment, I drug it over fallen trees, I laid it against rocks at the campsite. I neither abused nor coddled it. It could fail on my next trip leaving me to bearhug my remaining gear like a bachelor in a grocery store. But I don't think it will. It is a great pack for 37 bucks.

I bought this expecting to do some work to get it trailready. I think i underestimated the pack. I was very very very suprised at the quality and design of this pack. NOTE: I have not taken this out on the trail yet!

Pros: Tremendous amounts of storeage. This pack is HUGE! Yet it is very light. I was worried there wouldnt be many external storeage compartments from the descriptions but there are 8 total + main compartment. HOrizontal entry to main bottom as well as vertical entry to main (and top of course). and the main compartment is simply HUGE. 2 drings front and 2 on back. Straps appear to be quality pretty decent with double and triple stitching in some places. If youre one of those people who yanks straps with all your might, and generally abuses bags.. spend a couple bucks on some high tensile fishing line or whatever and reinforce them just in case. The fabric is good quality..i honestly expected cheap fabric barely stitched at this price. LOTs of compression straps. 2 across chest. straps on sides, bottom and back to compact the pack. Carrying height is extremely adjustable. The waist straps are substantial though i will probably reinforce them (a pack this big can end up packed VERY heavy!). The buckles/connectors are MUCH higher quality than i expected. Ive seen $$$$ packs at REI with cheap garbage connectors... These are substantial. Zippers appear substantial as do the fobs. I might consider treating parts of this pack with silicon.

Cons: i think they saved money on back support. no high dollar aluminum.. just a thick, pretty stiff plastic insert with zipper access. So you could insert the supports from a higher $ pack or roll your own. Should be fine for anything but a HEAVY pack. No evaporation mesh next to back.. which you could install yourself fairly easily.

Just a product overview because I couldn't find any online; and I thought this may be helpful for some out there.

EDIT: After trail blazing through the Ozark National Forest mountain region in northern Arkansas, I have to say that I couldn't be more pleased with this pack. It took a bit of adjustment to get it nice and comfortable (for me, it felt best to wear it high with the waist buckle tight around my abdomen and right above my hip bones), but it did great for a 2 day 15 mile hike through the mountains. Make sure to pack the gear evenly from side to side so it sits well and uneven weight does not cause unneeded stress. The only thing I wish that I had was a rain fly, because this one doesnt come with one. Day 2 it poured, and I got by with a make shift trash bag rain fly, but just pick up a cheap one somewhere on amazon for a good companion to this amazing pack.

I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality, but inexpensive pack.

I have to say that for the price I paid I did not expect such high quality! Definitely worth every penny. Very stable and well built and plenty of storage space. One thing I find most pleasing is that there are two long pockets on the side that a water bladder fits perfectly in to-perfect for long trips with little water sources. This pack comes highly recommended.

For the price this is a large hiking pack with plenty of pockets and closures, cinches, etc. I bought mine in the khaki color which is a muted military green color and not bright at all which I like. The straps are simple system with no fancy material to wick away moisture but they work just fine. The buckle straps are not always easy to slide the nylon webbing through but they have not failed yet. Material seems heavy duty and water resistant since the interior is coated. The internal plastic backing is removable and is not going to keep your bag upright if it's packed full. Basically it's a mediocre plastic sheet but for the price I don't care.

Either Western Pack or the actual seller has quality control issues they need to work out. When I received my bag, I inspected for loose threads and missed stitching which I found. I had to cut at least six loose threads and found two major sewing mistakes that makes me wonder if the seller here is really selling "seconds" and not saying so. The top turtle shell enclosure lid edging was missed almost a third of the way around leaving frayed edge. The side of the bag also had the same problem which would have torn even worse if I had not caught the problem before using the bag. Good thing I have a sewing machine and I'm not afraid to use it. I give three stars for the quality control issues although for the price this bag is descent if you are on a budget. Although I will warn any future buyers that it's important to thoroughly inspect this bag for missed stitching and loose threads everywhere.
