Rock Solid Bag!!!
I normally do not leave reviews...not enough time in the day but this bag warrants it. I got the bag for free because of a glich on their website that said 0.00 so i paid 16.76 in S&H. I own four or five bags 5.11 72 hour bag, blackhawk 72 hour bag, etc and have never pushed them to the limit because of the high cost of the equipment. I got this for free so i decided to see what it can handle. I loaded it full of sand in all five exterior pockets and three quarters of the way in the main compartment with a sleeping mat laid between the sand and the bag. I took it to the Sierra mountains and stopped halfway up the trail to tie it to the back of the pickup by the drag handle and drove for a half a mile. Dusted it off and humped that heavy sonofbitch three miles up and down the switchbacks taking it off a few times to throw it down the rocky trail...needless to say i emptied it upon walking back. I took it home and blew it off with an air compressor and checked the buckles and seams. Bag it tough...tougher than me and will carry anything you ask it to, probably more then you need unless to are on an extended op. No complaints, far exeeds the Alice pack and i seriously hope they do not discontinue this bag. I Will be getting the multicam version soon.
