"A lot to be said for an inexpensive pack that holds everything, and
it even has a place for your water bottle. It's fully adjustable to fit
me (6'5") or my best friend (5'9"). Structurally secure and all
weight is transferred to the hips. Not a single problem on AT."
"This is my first internal-frame, and it has enough about it that is like an old external-load-hauler to make it extremely easy to pack and use... So far it has comfortably carried up to 60 lbs, and the volume and setup are good. It may not have as many bells and whistles, especially in the suspension, but it seems to fit well. One thing about it is that the sleeping bag compartment seems to be way larger than any bag should need, and makes packing a little difficult... Quality of workmanship is great."
"This is my first internal frame backpack. I have used it on at least 8 trips and have had no complaints. It seems to expand to carry as much gear as i need. The hip belt is very comfortable as well as the whole pack. I'd recommend this pack to anyone."
"Two years ago myself and six scouts bought the Arapaho to go to Philmont Scount Ranch. It performed well for all of us with no bad seams, zippers, or buckles. Once adjusted it hugged my back and was very stable. All of the packs are still in excellent shape showing very little wear. Huge capacity with plenty of expansion for longer trips. For the price and capacity it's a great choice, but I don't think they're still being made."
