Simply the best. Ever.Review by Ben
I've used just about every brand and material of portage pack since the 80's - modern and vintage, synthetic and natural - and I can say this pack is my all time favorite.

The #4 is large enough for tons of stuff and the pockets are fantastic. Spend the money for the #4 - I'm glad I did. The three internal pockets are great for organization. I don't use the rear sleep pad pocket, but I'm sure some might. The side pockets comfortably hold water bottles and rain gear and a steripen. They can also each easily hold a 64oz growler with room to spare.

The leather straps are beautiful and comfortable. The buckles are smooth and elegant. The reinforcement ears are perfect.

This pack is heavier than others, but that doesn't bother me. It is solid, well built and designed, and absolutely gorgeous (I got mine in khaki). I don't use the sternum strap, but I love the waist strap - it really makes a difference on the 200+ rod marches. I also don't use the head thing. But it's there for those who like it. It comes with a big thick plastic bag - I don't use those either; I find them clumsy and inconvenient.

What would I change? I'd like to see the three front internal pockets in canvas. They are fine but I'd prefer the durability of canvas. Consider this if you custom-order.

Working with the shop was an excellent experience. I got mine monogrammed and it looks awesome. The time from order to delivery was about 4 weeks.

What are you waiting for? Yes, it costs far more than the three-lettered brand or the rock brand. Invest in this pack and use it for generations. You'll love it. (Posted on 7/18/2015)
the greastest canoe pack ever madeReview by britts
Side pouches are great for water bottles and rainy gear. Padded shoulder straps are great on long portages. Inside pocket is perfect for a tarp. If you can't fit your gear in this pack you don't need to bring it! (Posted on 5/21/2015)
Solid, huge packReview by greenblackplaid
My pack has been on ~20 BWCA trips so far, with no concerns. Moderately waterproof in in practice in waxed canvas, when compared to the normal green canvas. HUGE capacity, great pack for tents/sleeping bags/personal gear. Hip belt makes it more comfortable for those maybe not as used to a weighty portage pack. Padded straps appreciated with portages measured in miles. Side pockets great for nalgenes, can fit two side by side. (Posted on 12/12/2010)
