I couldn’t wait to get some weight in my pack and test it out before hunting season started, so I strapped my 120lb mom in between the frame and bag, cinched everything down and hauled her around the backyard. The pack rode like a dream. From the airflow across my back, and completely rigid frame, to the exceptional layout of the bag and supremely comfortable hip belt and shoulder straps…this pack has it all. I hauled about 80lbs of elk meat down a very steep and rocky hillside, and I never felt like the pack was barreling. It stayed centered on my back and rode comfortably all the way down the mountain. Keep up the great work!
