Lightweight HaulerThis pack is great, quantity of straps makes adjusting the fit and cinching down gear a breeze. The aluminum frame creaks at the shoulders when the pack is fully loaded (just over 30lbs for me). A cross-piece of the aluminum frame folds vertical water bladders across the middle, which is problematic if the pack is loaded tightly (won't be using a water bladder with it again). The same cross-piece can come unstrapped if you hit it hard while loading gear (or rough handling in general) and is quite a pain to re-attach. If it does come loose you risk wearing a hole through the side of the pack. Rain fly is simple to use and is slightly loose to accommodate items stuffed into elastic portions on the sides or rear (rain fly is blue and is stored in the base of the pack). Side water bottle pockets have openings vertically and angled forward to make access while hiking easier.

What kind of frame does this pack have?
Asked by: Daniel
this pack has a plastic frame, it is not made of wood like the Kajka packs. The back panel is mesh and the frame runs around the periphery of it so it has great ventilation.
