    woderful Pack

    by
    This great. I see lots of low reviews because it's small or "too short". My friends and I don't agree with that. I'm 5'4" my coworker is maybe 5". We both love this pack. There are lots of tall people packs out there and very few for smaller people. This is a great pack for a great price. I use it every day for camera equipment carry and on vacation.

    Awesome

    by
    Very awesome backpack! Has a lot of pockets and bigger than I was expecting. Comfort is great and the waist strap has 2 pockets. Very impressed

    Small

    by
    This is my 5th time to try to post a review. The bag is great. Built well. Feels sturdy but is too small for my build. The waist strap hits me just under my chest.

    Great pack

    by
    This pack holds some of my heavier gear that I need to have with me every day. It works perfectly and is quite rugged

    Smaller than expected.

    by
    This is very nice quality-wise. But it is much smaller than expected. I have a 70l pack. And this is definitely not half its size. Great pack if you don't need something a little larger. Don't buy to just see as sending it back is almost half the cost of the pack.

    Water pack not working

    by
    This backpack has the potential to be great but I cannot get the water to leave the hydration sack.

    Runs Small

    by
    Overall the pack appears to be of good quality with lots of cool compartments. Be advised it is sized for a smaller person or child. I'm 5-9 and the hipbelt is essentially useless - it rides high on the waist - not the hips and the is no adjustment to the straps to lower it. If you don't need to use the hipbelt it's good.

    Not 35L as described.

    by
    The pack measures 18x12x7. It is 25L not 35. While the pack is nice and full of features, it is unfortunately almost too short to utilize the hip belt at 5'-7". If it was taller, it would have been a perfect pack.

    Good pack. Small

    by
    This is my 4th attempt at posting a review. This is a well built pack and feels quite sturdy. However, it is much smaller framed than i anticipated. The waist strap hits me just under my chest. (im 6/1", 220 lbs). My wife may be able to use it but it wont work for what I need it for.

    Good pack. Pretty small

    by
    Bag is built well. Priced well also. It’s comfortable to wear but is small for me. The hip belt hits me just under my chest. I’m 6’1” 220. I like it, but it probably won’t work for what I need

    Better than expected

    by
    This bag is much nicer that I expected. I love the air flow system on the back. I wish the bladder compartment was insulated rtic style but that's ok. The bladder comes with a bad plastic taste like any other water bladder, but after filling with warm water and baking soda and letting soak over night, it's good to go. Flow is kinda hard to drink but I'm hoping it gets better over time.

    Good looking pack

    by
    Just got it in. Looks good. Seems well built. The hip belt hits me just under my chest and above my belly button. Would be much better suited for a smaller woman. (I’m 6’1). Don’t think it’s going to work for what I need it for due to being too small.

    Mr

    by
    Do not buy this until they fix the pack....i am 6’ 1” and the waste strap fita me on my belly wven after the max adjustment.....i weigh 200lbs so im not over weight.....the shoulder straps are short and the pockets on the waist belt are too small to reach in.....while the design of this pack is excellent they have a bad batch of them and RTIC is aware as others have complained......the quality ia not bad but for what RTIC is known for the quality on this pack is average and nothing special.......slow down RTIC and get the quality under control!!!!

    Hiking Backpack

    by
    Bought this for my fiancé a while back, been in the box and haven’t been able to use it until now. It’s a great backpack! Comfortable while hiking, and we used it for hunting too to help carry some of our things. The only thing that disappoints me is the first time we used it and filled the bladder, it leaked everywhere. That’s why I give it 4stars. Double check it!

    Good for the price, but...

    by
    I don't want to be too harsh with this review since the price of this pack ($70) is so low compared to high end packs with similar features. It does have a couple of issues though. To start off with a positive, the pack is light weight, and has good features, like the built in rain cover. It works fairly well on a short day hike, and I will probably use it for a while before looking for another. The first negative item is the construction quality feels less than rugged. The zippers are small and thin and don't feel like they will stand the test of time. Otherwise, the storage on the pack is good and has what I expected. Second, the hip belt rides very high on me. I am 6'1", though I have a fairly average length torso. The belt naturally wants to wrap around my belly, and not my waist where it belongs. I am able to angle the straps downward and cinch them tight to stay around my waist, but the entire purpose of a waist belt is to cary the load of the pack, and at that angle, I feel it isn't doing all it can. Lastly, the hydration system that comes with the pack is not very good. It is missing some key features. The hose has no quick disconnect, but instead unscrews from the bladder. This is a terrible design and a real pain to remove for dumping and filling. The bite end uses a pull system like a sports drink bottle, however it doesn't open up nearly enough to get a good flow of water going. You have to suck hard on this thing to get a tiny amount of water at a time... it's like work. So now that I have taken my first hike with it, that hydration system is going straight in the trash. I will be replacing it with a similar sized (3L) Camelback Mil-Spec that I have used in another pack. That thing is fantastic in every way. So to finalize, those are my biggest issues with the pack, but I am not going to slam it too hard because the value is incredible. You can't find all the features this pack has for that low of a price anywhere, but you do get what you pay for.

    CAMO PLEASE

    by
    I love the looks of this backpack when will you make it in Camo for hunting and packing in?

    Great Buy

    by
    Bought this backpack for a hiking trip in Joshua Tree and it didn't disappoint. Holds plenty of water. When not using it for hiking the pack has plenty of compartments to use and it is very spacious. I would recommend buying if interested.

    Size

    by
    I wish there was a question area on the web site. Anyway, It says 35 liter which translates to 9.24 gallons or roughly 80 lbs. It just doesn't look that big.

    Insulated area

    by
    If this back pack had a large insulated area for cold food storage I’d buy one today.

    Just what we needed

    by
    Back is awesome and lots of storage and very comfortable to wear however the only reason it’s getting 4 stars is that it very difficult to get liquid out of the straw!
