This is a great combo backpack and rope bag, minimalist but with intelligent features, for example the rope tarp velcros into the pack so you can use it separately if you want. EMS was blowing them out for $30 which is a steal considering the quality - heck you can barely get a basic bag for that. It's basically exactly what I wanted, unfortunately they don't make it any more, so I'm hoping it will last a lifetime - seems pretty durable so far. I think I have the second generation model (light blue, not dark blue), I saw another online review at http://www.gunks.com/content/climb/gear/pack%20review/allpacks_julie.htm with the same complaint as skateman, and I think they fixed the straps and buckles problem cause mine are fine. I just noticed the sternum strap buckle is a whistle too, cute!
