Product Review (submitted on December 10, 2009):
I've worn this pack to out deer hunting in the northern woods of Minnesota for two years now. It still looks like new! It holds everything I need for a full day in the woods, easy access to hydration bottles are right on the side, and it just shrugs off the snowy branches, tree bark, and the thickest brush that I have to push through. Binoculars, GPS, knife, spare gloves, and extra winter gear are kept perfectly clean and scratch free in this pack; no sticks poke through the canvas and the handy bungee is great for stowing those layers you peel off during the heat of the day. Quickly shrug it off, clip it into a hoist, and drag it up the side of any tree trunk, it won't care! Oversized zipper tracks with canvas fold-over flaps mean the zippers stay put and nothing accidentally falls out. This one's a winner.
