This pack carrys ok but is hot on the back. Having the chainsaw pouch on the outside of the pack moves the load far from the back. Being 6-12 inches from your back, the chainsaw makes the pack wiggle around as you turn or shift your weight. This pack will get the job done but certainly could be better designed. Also, it needs a dedicated external pocket that identifies where your medical kit is. In an emergency an assistant shouldn't have to look around for it.
I purchased this through Dakine a while back. It’s terrible. The side straps that would allow tools to be strapped in on the sides will not stay tight. It appears to be a basic design flaw. Probably okay if you don’t strap long tools to the side. The long tools would get loose, swing around and become a hassle. At one point is was either going to just leave the tools out at the work site, or leave the pack out in the wild and hand carry to tools back (Nothing was left out on the trails). I wish you better luck if you purchase this pack. As far as tools for trails go, they have been solid. This particular pack though, not so much.
