Lots of storage areas to keep things seperated which makes it easier to find something when you need it. I use it for my ATV riding and the harnesses keeps it inplace and not bouncing around on you. The extra padding is where it needs to be for comfort on the long ventures....... its perfect.
My brother got a backpack like this 2 years ago and it is in excellent condition despite its daily use. The zippers and buckles all work! It is built for rugged use and lasts. It's comfortable to wear and everything is adjustable. I would recommend this to anyone who requires a backpack that holds a lot of stuff and lasts after use and abuse. I just got one and its the most awesome pack I've ever had.
Good to have it the mountains for extra gear you need to bring along. Should have aliitle bigger pocket for there hmk shovel head and a way to keep it in the bag, I have to put my Shovel head in my seat so it doesn't get lost from coming out of the bag.
