The pack is well suited for chasing feather and fur while carrying a full day needs.This is an initial review of a pack well designed and though out for light daily field use. What it is not, is an over built pack for long term real world or extended bush crafting sojourns. The high quality materials in this pack are deliberately kept strong but lean heavily towards light weight and this is where this pack shines. The pack holds enough basic gear for full days hunt where long treks are required. It's very light, adjustable and very comfortable. It is excellent for chasing upland game like chukar up and down mountains or walking endless corn miles seeking pheasant. The pack will also make an excellent fly fishing exploration pack within its size limits, the side pockets rock and fit every one of my rod tubes. Again the quality and construction is above average, but don't expect this to compete with similar sized long term packs like Mystery Ranch's 3 day Assault or Emberlystock's great X-2; I have both, but neither are as light and svelte as this Forest pack.
