I found the pack to be excellent, especially considering the low price point. It is sufficiently roomy for a 3-season 2/3 day trip and has an excellent strapping system both for fit and compression.
The pack is fitted for larger framed persons; I'm 5' 7", 170 pounds, and found myself cinching up the straps almost to their absolute minimum, but they still functioned perfectly fine.
I also experienced the "Squeaking" problem, and to me it seemed to happen only when the load shifted its weight onto the point where the straps connect to the pack, and occured especially during lateral movement. This is hard to overcome during steep uphills, but keeping the load properly positioned on your hips will elimnate the squeak most of the time.
The attached rain-fly fits the pack very well even when heavily loaded and with an attached bedroll, and keeps it dry even in a heavy rain. The built in hydration ports are especially useful, as I was able to use my Camelback resivoir with the pack.
The long and the short of it is that if you are looking to make a smart buy, this is a quality pack that is smartly built that will not leave you with regrets.
UPDATE: This past year, I continued to use this backpack on several treks. Seven days on the AT going across The Smoky Mtn National Park, eight days of trekking in the mountains of Nepal, and a whole bunch of day hikes and overnighters in preparation for the treks. This pack is still going strong. No broken buckles, no ripped seams, no frayed straps. Very pleased and look forward to another active year of backpacking for 2014. I did find one thing that I wish was better and that is the pack cover. It is a bit too small when I have the pack side pouches loaded. After a 9 mile hike in a Nepali rain, I had more rain seep in around the edges than expected.Read more ›
I pulled the rainfly out of the bottom of the bag and attempted to pull the cover over the bag without much force which resulted in one of the cords pulling out of the molded tie end and the end slipped into the raincover. A safety pin and 1/2 hour later I was able to tie the ends together and cut off the molded tie off the other end. The rainfly will not really cover an attached bedroll (as another reviewer mentioned), but it does cover the pack well.
The top cover of this bag will not cover the top of the bag unless completely filled. It will more likely end up as a hump extending outward (backward) from the back of the pack. This is the result of the front 2 connection points for the cover being to high on the bag with little room for adjustment. This characteristic makes the rainfly even more of a necessity to keep moisture out of the main pack compartment and expect to use the rainfly more often as a result.
Despite these 2 design/construction problems, the pack is still worth the less than a Benjamin price.
The pack will fit diagonally into a standard sized full suitcase for travel if not 100% loaded.
The zippers are better quality than my three Benjamin bag, but cant seem to find any on a hiking pack like this with the humungo no nonsense zippers the military and Duluth Packs use. This bag was not designed to be handed down in the family, but it will serve well for a few seasons.

Very nice pack. I've used it on 3 multi day hikes. It's a bit larger than I needed, remember the more you pack the more you have to carry and this thing will hold a lot of stuff. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Jimmy
