Great Pack

I took this pack on my backpacking trip. It was comfortable and reasonably light. I was looking for a pack that was easy to load without extra pockets (because I can never figure out how to fill them efficiently) and this one fit the bill. The back entry is large and the top entry rolls down and secures nicely to the pack. There are plenty of straps to stabilize the load. I needed to adjust the torso length and found that to be quick and easy. Five Stars

Nomad RT 50 Review

I took a backpacking trip using the Nomad RT 50. It is a reasonably light bag with top and rear access. I like the fact that the volume can range from 40 to 60 liters easily by rolling and securing the top opening. There is a pocket for a water bladder but there are no additional pockets inside the pack. I found that to be a feature because it minimized the weight of the pack. The pack is comfortable and was easily adjusted to my torso size. The pack is well built and has plenty of straps to secure and stabilize the load. Five Stars.
