"So I told my husband I wanted to make a 72 hour kit for our small family and asked him to help me pick out the perfect bag since he has more exp. in this sort of thing than I do (he is retired Military). This is the pack he chose and gave me several reasons why this was perfect for us... (Seeing that it was on major sale I was totally game :) This pack met and FAR exceeded my expectations, opening, adjusting, and loading this bag was like Christmas all over again!!!! AND I have room for even more stuff than I planed to go in this bag, its HUGE inside and seems bottomless for being about the size of a normal school back pack, and I love that it has a special divider, hanging clips, and a reinforced (extra stitched and material) slit for the hydration tube at the top. My Husband and I are fighting over who will truly get this bag once I have finished packing it.. But I told him he could have it if he gets me the green one. (Green is my fav. color) LOL. Wonderful strong and durable pack and I'm telling all my friends to get one!!!!!"
