Classic for a reason
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
External frame bags are loosing popularity, and I understand why. Even properly balanced and loaded, you will notice some weight swing if you find yourself clambering over logs or navigating the bush, and the pack itself does add a light load addition. That being said, my review of the Trekker is not meant to be negative. The numerous pockets on this bag make sorting and selecting items on the go a breeze. The straps are comfortable. The weight feels nice as you trek on. Airflow to your lumbar and back is very nice (an edge over internals). And at the end of the day, this baby gets it done. Simple as that. Nothing fancy, just a classic. Would recommend to people who aren't die hards, but want to load up and go without breaking their bank; This will do you just fine!
