What do you think of the top closure "flaps" Like/hate?
I thought perhaps a draw string closer would be nicer, and more secure for top loaded gear.
Just an idea I had to customize the pack whenever I order it.
The frost river in person seemed to be a far more solid pack, and better fitting as well than the duluth.
Glad you like yours, I am jealous!
That's not a bad idea But I think you lose a couple inches space I may in the future add a wet weather topper in like I did with m y ruck that will let you maximize spac and still let you close it all up
Great stuff brother, this is the first actual review on you tube or anywhere(other than pics and the small clip showing the owners of FR) for that matter.....thanks for sharing with us...
I forgot to ask...how would you rank this pack(all around) compared to the Elberlestock you own as well....I really like both packs...
while the eberlestock has an internal frame that's very comfortable you do have to relaern to pack it as its a unique packing system in order to fit all your items but the frost river could go from pretty comfortable to god awful pretty quick if packed the wrong way
Where as the eberlestock halftrack I own isn't quite a full on ruck sized it could be used for warm weather camping trips or be able to attach items for cooler weather or extended trips the frost river was ment to compete with actual backpacking bags designed for extended camping trips so the size of the frost river is bigger initially but doesn't have as many options to attach items that the halftrack has due to the molle webbing on it
I will use the halftrack for work and the bushcraft pack for hanging out in the woods for fun
Hope that helps
I found the halftrack hard to pack at times. I really didn't like the internal molle, pockets and divider. I would have preferred it to be plan on the inside, cutting down on weight and doodads. That's one awesome thing about the traditional packs. They have a lot of flexibility when packing odd shaped items. Great review by the way! Thank you
