Pecos Wilderness
Santa Fe, NM

Day Trip / 7 miles

Field notes by: Karly Borden

The fit on this bag is a little large, but I was larger when I bought it. It actually cinches down really well. All the straps are very comfortable and adjust at all the right spots. They also have a ton of venting on the straps and the back allowing air to flow just about everywhere. I would say that the bag is very accurate in its advertised calculated volume. All my gear for my hikes and mountain bike trips fits well. At first when I bought this bag it had a couple bad slider buttons and it caused me to lose some very expensive trekking poles...
