Remote Alaska-Yukon tested....and passed.....Just bought this pack for field work in remote Alaska/Yukon Territory. Held up really well. Added a rain cover for the typical rainy days. Was able to carry all the gear I needed (in case the helicopter didn't pick me up at the end of the day). The full side-zip is huge and makes it easy to access gear from top to bottom. Took a bit to get shoulder straps dialed in (especially with 50-100 lbs in pack). Ventilation system worked really well, though it does change the center of gravity a bit. Hip straps are great; pivot and customization are best attributes. Hydration compatibility worked fine. Overall, I really liked the pockets/gear management of this pack. Still hope to get it more comfortable on the shoulder straps (padding seems to hit in a funny place). ,,I really like the pack.

Love ItI use this bag for everything. I mostly use it for hauling camping and rock climbing gear. I have only taken it on day hikes so far, but also load it with 40lbs of gear, which is on the heavy side for this pack. I also used it as luggage for a week trip to Europe. Its big enough to pack for a week of travel and small enough to carry-on flights. MHM seems like a very innovative company. The pack is very comfortable and the back ventilation is good but not the best I've ever seen.

Great backpackI looked for a few months for a quality, adjustable backpack and was thankfully, referred to MHM products. What a pack....the quality is just fantastic and the fit is even better. These guys are outdoorsman first, so everything is well thought out. Yes, they are not inexpensive, but I plan to own/use this pack for a very long time. Bravo!
