Disappointing in the basics, and that is really all this pack has to offer. Main complaint is the super light and thing straps slide loose so the shoulder straps constantly slip. The "frame sheet" is almost useless and buckled on the first packing. The color portions of the pack are super thine and not very durable. Tool attachments are impossible to use with gloves.

I would have returned it but I cut off the also useless hip belt.

As I expected the pack is super light and the white dyneema fabric is very durable.
