|Make and Model:||EMS Ascent 2500|
|Capacity (cubic inches):||2500|
|Review:||I bought this a couple years when I was getting back into hiking after a long layoff.|
The price was right (got it on sale) and it promised to be more comfortable than carrying a bookbag type pack which I had done on my first few hikes back.
The Ascent was for one a dramatic increase in comfort. I was able to take all the stuff I felt I needed, plus carry some extra stuff so my wife didnt need to.
It has held up remarkably well and shows no ill effects after a three years and dozens of uses.
The one small gripe I have is that the water bottle holders on the side do not really hold a nalgene bottle with any degree of certainty.
