I’m officially hooked on the Exo Mountain Gear 3500. It doesn’t slip, shift, dig, bruise, or wobble over varying terrain. I now know that when I’m in the backcountry and miles from the truck, I have a reliable partner in crime on my back that is up to the task. It will allow me to go further and go heavier without ever giving it a second thought. My search for the Holy Grail of packs might actually be coming to a close.
