Pros Lightweight, comfortable, straps are removable or stowableRugged, stiff and wide opening, variety of carry optionsEasy to pack, comfortable shoulder straps, excellent pockets, super durableExcellent shoulder straps, thick waterproof coatingHighly weather resistant, easy to pack, comfortable shoulder straps
Cons Not as durable as others, compression strap buckles get in the wayOnly one smaller pocket, heavyNot super light, fabric is a little stiffRelatively thin fabric, extra unnecessary featuresExternally accessed pocket is on the smaller side, shoulder straps take a little more work to remove
Bottom Line Lightweight materials and solid construction make this bag a worthy choiceFor trips that range from mundane to life-changing, we haven’t found a better all purpose bagRemains our favorite all-around model on a budgetFor extended backpack carry, it is unmatched; this comfort and performance comes at the cost of durability and weather protectionA solid all-around excellent expedition bag, this model was built with remote adventures in mind
