    Great Backpack - with a catch

    By Jon on 12/15/2017

    Verified Purchase

    So I love this pack. It does what it's supposed to do and is really well made. I've wasted money on others (Chapin) which gave me 1-year service and then shattered (literally). This pack has withstood many applications and holds strong. It's easy to maintain and parts are replaceable (but pricey). The metal handle is a beauty - especially when you've used the "all plastic" ones previously. It feels and operates like a premium item. My -1 star is because of the brass nut on the back of the pack, midway up between piston and tank. It leaks, constantly. I've attempted to repair it by applying some plumbers tape and really crank it down, but after 1 year, I'm going to have to replace the tape again. It worked great at first, but apparently, there is some sort of force that turns the nut loose and leaks solution EVERYWHERE (down your back and pants). Other than that, I love this pack and am planning to buy another. It's worth it, just go into it knowing that it's not totally perfect.
