This backpack is very well designed. It has numerous pockets and a very comfortable, thick padded back panel and straps. However the rest of the pack feels very cheap. The materials used are not the best. They are the lower quality nylon and the crappy polyester kodra. The bottom is very weak and fragile. I would not trust it to hold even fifteen pounds. It is also made overseas with questionable workmanship. Now, someone may say, it's got lifetime warranty. Let me ask you this, what will that do for you when your pack fails you in the middle of the trail, miles away from home??? This could have been a much better pack if Kelty didn't cut corners.
