Jöran Jäderberg says:

Great video and that seem to be a really nice pack and it looks to hold up. :)

Shawn R says:

Pretty good carry.
I would put the contents of your outside pockets in those plastic bags. Medical kit included.
In the event of wet weather items would stay dry.
Only thing I would add would be a plastic baggie with some dry socks. I know you said you were only going a few miles but ….
I like having the ability to get my feet dry just in case.

Danny Walker says:

NICE look’n BackPack, Kyle. Please let is know in a year from now “How Its Work’n Out” I’m curious bout it.

majka majka says:

useful video:)

SurvivorMetalMan says:

Sweet pack, looks like lots of room, and comfortable too.

BUSHCRAFTER CHANNEL says:

Awesome pack brother awesome video

Casey1pj says:

You are basically using it as a day pack Kyle. Judging from the stitching on it and the fact that you are not overloading it, It will probably last you for many years. If that doesn’t have a frame then that water bladder serves twofold on it’s purpose. It will serve as a buffer between your back and other items so they don’t press against your back and make it uncomfortable. The only thing that I didn’t like is the Zippers. I’m just one of those people that don’t like zippers. Excellent review!

Bez stopy says:

tactical indeed 😉 glad you like it, enjoy.

乇volve Outdoors says:

About the size i need for overnighter’s, I like to keep various pack’s ready to go depending on the scenario.

I will Survive says:

Nice Pack Looks like it will do well

Kaylynn Strain says:

pretty cool pack, I would use that bottom pocket for a pack cover, or maybe put the mylar blanket in there too, I like the way the water bladder hose comes out of the pack, less chance of your pack pulling a leak like a typical hose hole would

Shane Slone says:

Looks good, enjoyed the video! I do think you would look better in a pink backpack! LOL

the Oklahoma prepper says:

Great video and awesome review

HIKE'N DEEP says:

Good stuff… what is the name of your headlamp? I forgot again. Thanks

Fred B. says:

Thanks for the review. The pack looks like it fits you very well. Nicely priced at just under $50.

Bjorn Andreas Bull-Hansen says:

Nice backpack. I support your method of having a backpack for each purpose.

Don Brink says:

Whatcha gonna use the pepper spray for?

Jeff Smith says:

Good review and unpacking. I really like videos like this because it kinda teaches people what you might need on a day trip or overnighter etc.. You can learn some great ideas from seeing what other people carry. I think the knife is a parang. Looking forward to the next one brother!

Harald Thingelstad says:

Nice pack. (And now for the comments.)
The world isn’t as overpolulated as we think, it’s just that we clump. But there are still large areas of wilderness left, if you’d rather like to live there. You’ve got to live with your choices, to put it that way.
Compression straps have a side benifit you may not have thought of: If to you keep them on just tight enough, they help you avoid overloading your zippers. So you can have those nice, long zippers on your backpack, cram it full and still keep your zippers from ripping apart.
I’m not against putting things on the outside of my pack, if I can strap it absolutely securely on. The problem comes when you’re lazy and just hope it doesn’t fall out. And yes, I have a knife waiting for me out in the woods. I know pretty much where it is, it’s just hard to find in half a meter of snow. And I got it from my father, too, so I’m really fond of it. I was just lazy and hoped it wouldn’t fall out of my pocket while getting firewood. (Duh!)
The bottom pocket is good for rain jackets, caps, gloves and other small clothes. Or a rain cover for your backpack. It has the added benefit of cushioning the bottom when not in use.
The wood we have here isn’t very machete friendly, we use axe and saw. But I still want for something like the Ontario SP-53. It’s an expensive piece of gear though, so it’s way back on my list.
To have some kind of flashlight (and spare batteries) in your pack is very handy, as life isn’t easy to plan. Being stuck in a dark, damp wood and not even being able to see where to put your foot isn’t fun. I’ve been there, and luckily I had the gear to get through the night. And now carry two headlamps. You can put a piece of plastic between the battery poles to keep it from discharging, instead of relying on not losing your battery case.
And I agree, a cheap compass may trick you a bit and put you about as much as five degrees off direction, but it’s way better than going in circles. They may have cheap bearings and small magnets, but the rest is pretty much impossible to make any cheaper if you want it to pass as a compass.
And your backpack is fine as a daypack, sure. If hiking across the US, going on an expedition or something, I’d go for the more expensive stuff but in this case it’s crazy. Enjoy your hike!

Pinetree Line Outdoors says:

Nice review of the backpack and I’m always interested in hearing your thoughts on the contents you’ve decided to out in. Thanks Kyle!

Bloody Carnivore says:

Nice shirt, but your not the sharpest knife in the wood’s now are you.
