What was unique about reviewing this bag was how pleasant the researching process was. Normally we have to sift through a complicated and often emotionally charged mix of pros and cons, likes and dislikes, over-statements and self-consciousness. With this contender, consumers had some great ideas of ways to fine tune the backpack, but mostly the reviews online tell stories of the adventures people have had with these packs, how pleased they were with the bag, and in many cases, how they ended up buying this pack for all of their family members. How sweet is that?
This contender is certainly not a perfect fit for everyone reading this review, but we will share the pros and cons, and if you're a match for this pack, we're pretty confident you'll love it.
