Product Review (submitted on December 2, 2013):
I was gifted this pack a couple years ago, and use it from canoeing, hiking, but mostly for hunting. I abuse the heck out of it. I can stuff the large main compartment with extra clothing layers and safety harness plus food, etc, strap tree climbing sticks to the side with the straps, and attach my treestand on the back of it with carabiners to the D-rings. I've even strapped my rifle to the side with the 3 side straps. You can snug them down very tight, and while I initially was skeptical of the plastic clasps and nylon straps, they haven't failed me yet. The zippered pocket in the top flap is a bit awkward to use, and I wish it had one or two additional smaller zippered pouches on the interior, other than that this pack has served me very well, and I couldn't recommend it more.
