Wildland Firefighter Pack - Backpack
Product Review (submitted on September 27, 2009):
Most serviceable day pack I've owned, though it was designed originally for other uses. Ideal weight distribution with solid leather harness that molds over time to your frame, like a pair of fine Limmer boots. I rarely buckle the side pockets or main bucket behind: the cinches suffice to keep things in place, and this leaves the perfectly situated and roomy compartments accessible while wearing the pack. The broad leather support belt is comfortable, but I wonder whether a cloth belt such as in the Monarch or Bushcrafter models might also do the job. The pack so far has endured six months of being dragged through cliff faces and brambles without a scar or tear, and I'm happier each week with my purchase.
