I'm sure there's more than a few sack aficionados checking out the reviews and seeing if this is worth it, so I don't have to explain to you why it's so satisfying to get good ruck. The point of the review is: this is a good ruck. If you're familiar with Berghaus or Bergen bags then you're in for more of the same, but this time in nutria brown. One point to note, (although it may be placebo effect on SADF gear) the bag feels like you could set off a grenade inside of it, and keep using it. Think of that assault pack you were issued in basic, think about all the privates who must have abused it for years before you got it, think about how there were no holes, no broken straps, no busted buckles, minimal stains. This is that assault pack's cooler, thiccer cousin. I packed it out (to about 55lbs, full but not jam-packed) and wore it out for a 3 day trip and it's about what you can expect, comfortable and evenly placed weight that rides your hips, no complaints or hotspots. I know the description mentions soldiers ditching the frame, but external frame packs are peak hiking boomer aesthetic, so I reused an old Kelty frame I had. If i were to buy a special frame for this ruck, I'd check out a game hauler frame like Outdoor Z's Commander. Testament to the bag: I bought one for myself, liked it so much, I bought another as a gift.
