|Pack Type:||Internal Frame|
|Make and Model:||REI New Star|
|Capacity (cubic inches):||4,602 / 5,122|
|Review:||$195 pack and well worth every penny.|
This is by far the best pack I have ever owned. It is top loading with several other easy access zippers. Floating top doubles as fanny pack. The hip and shoulder padding is so thick, and soft, and comfortable. I wore this pack on two long (8hour+) hikes so far and it felt great.
I am 5'8", the shoulder harness is highly adjustable.
