Mostly Great Review by Steele T

The item arrived in good time and in good condition. The only issue was that I noticed one of the buckles for the compression straps was sewn on backwards. I would hold BD responsible not Backcountrygear. Not a big issue, but because it is asymmetrical it digs into the pack in a weird way and I wonder if it will be more likely to break with heavy use.
