In my 54 years I have now had 4 packs the first a scout pack I had some 40 plus years ago as an Eagle scout - wish I had kept it but was rather small. Then a Kelty 15 years then a Mont only 3 years but well worn and used daily so can't complain. Now, the Fjallraven I wanted a vintage look and this by far my biggest pack 30 lites if i can't travel with that I shouldn't leave home at all. This is well made and after waxing it silly and encountering first shower yesterday (only got this in past 6 weeks) its brilliant. Fiddly with straps again, but the fabric construction and weight distribution are excellent. It will be the last pack I need I hope and I have several trips including the El Camino to do with this and Machu Picchu amongst others. I expected quality and I got it - a fair price it was on sale and I got free international shipping and customer service was outstanding. I am just amazed at the fabric and the vintage feel; it does remind me of my old scout pack. Waxing was easy and the use of a hair dryer was even more fun I don't do that to my hair..LOL You can't wrong except by not buying one!
