I used this for a 4 day Virginia section hike of the A/T and had no mechanical issues with it.

The material, seams, and connections are very solid. The is an extremely well made pack I expect to eventually pass down to my son.

The lack of a rain cover was not surprising, but still a little disappointing to have to make an additional purchase for such a simple item.

The lack of zippered pockets for small items was a problem. No safe place to put keys, wallet, phone, etc. Though there is a hanging clip for a key, it did not work for my type of key, so had to have a friend stow my valuables.

The side pouch, where I kept my Nalgene was too far back for me. I could barely get the anything out of the pocket and had to have a friend put it back in place.

The zippered pouches in the front waist strap were just right for a small camera and sunglasses.

Even with the minor issues, it is clear that this pack is a cut above the store brand packs, so was well worth the small extra cost.

One other note on this pack: It was cheaper in blue than in the other colors, which I assume is because the blue does not look as good in the pictures. I felt the same way about the color, though bought it anyway. In reality, the blue looks fine.

I bought this pack for a once-in-a-lifetime hike/camp across the Grand Canyon and it worked beautifully. It held everything I needed for the 4 day trip. Food, cloths, tent, sleeping bag and all the hiking/camping accessories one would require. I tried many different packs and found this one to be very price competitive, durable and comfortable (as 50 pounds on your back could be :) It was easy to wear and remove at the end of the day. I'm 6'1" and choose the medium size, because it was on sale, held what I needed and I'm at the upper limit of its recomended torso size. If you're an avid hiker/camper I highly recommend it.

Have taken this on a couple of trips, and I'm very pleased with the purchase. Found out about it from a backpacking blog site and bought it last year. I've tried several backpacking packs and none of them have been as comfortable and rugged as this one, plus the gold color looks really unique and cool. People will think you know what you're doing when they see you rocking the gold color, even if you've never backpacked before.

Have taken this pack on many hikes. Just got back from Big Bend and it passed the test again. My brother in law is jealous and he has an Osprey!

Well-designed. Good access to main storage. Integration of hydration system is good. The pack is extremely comfortable, even when fully-loaded. Quality of manufacture appears high. Great mid-sized pack.

This backpack was great. My husband headed out with it the next weekend and it held all he needed including the bear canister.

I`m 5`8" tall, 60kg weigh, 18" torso.
I bought Z65 small.
Waist belt should be adjusted in the small slot.

This back should have 58litters capacity though it looks as same as my old 45litters Merry backpack.

Panel load zipper looks useful inside the house, but in the field, if I try to use it I have to face the back side which is made from water absorbing material on wet or muddy ground. This Panel load system is for city backpacking and can be used in a hotel floor I guess.

This is a kind of heavy back using plastic and aluminum supporting flame. but when I actually carry it on my back I feel it fit me very well and don`t feel much weight. This is interesting magic. but I think it should have more capacity for this heavy back flames.

Over all, I like it. if it is on sale again. I want to buy one more.
