If I ever laid my hands on one I'd likely own it. I love the Atom which is close to the same bag with less storage.

USPS delivered one of these to my house yesterday with a return address to Kelso TN..


I put it together this morning and I'm really, really, impressed with the thought that went into engineering this pack. I have no doubt this pack will be with me for several years. I'm really starting to love Patagonia brand products. Not just hype, this stuff performs.

David, I don't know what I can do to thank you for the kindness you've displayed to me and everyone on this board over the years. THANK YOU for the gift!

Keeping this board up and running is never a question considering all the truly great people I've been blessed to get to know and call friend from here. Wanna meet some of the most caring and giving folks in this fishing community look no further then the pages on this board.

Looked at the brick and mortar shops multiple times, no bag, ended up with one in the mail. Took some looking to find one, Tom has since found them everywhere in Oregon.

Never looked at Patagonia gear much, but thanks for putting me in this direction.

I've had it for quite a while and only been out with it twice, CAN NOT FEEL IT ON MY BACK, and it holds a bunch  8)

If you are looking for a shoulder bag, give this one a look.



Can you get a rain jacket in this pack?
