Northface Backtrack 70

Used this bag for backpacking Europe in 2008, performed very well and the layout of the bag lends itself to urban travel.

I packed 62#s of gear in this bag and carried if for 3 months.

Really a very comfortable bag, the suspension system and internal frame is incredible. I am 6' tall 190#s (when I carried this I was 175#s... must've been all that walking with a 60# pack!) and this made all that trekking bearable.

Pros:
-Full zipper means you don't have to dig through a top loading bag
-Day pack is a nice addition if you are staying in a hotel or other place you can store the main bag
-Zippered strap cover keeps everything in place when checked

Cons:
-you can load 65#s of gear in it
-small external water bottle holder (daypack has hydration sleeve)

Damage:
My flipping GF used the strap on a different bag and broke the clasp (it survived 23 countries for me...) also the small water bottle holder had the webbing tear (I forget what I had in there but I never used it for water

spent $325 (woof)
Asking $100, prefer pickup, many more photos available upon request.

28 x 15 x 7in (71 x 38 x 17cm)
