Reviews

Scrambler™ RT 40 OutDry® Backpack is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but a few design oversights I originally bought this pack for weekend backcountry trips but have since upgraded to the Ozonic 50. Despite the product description, this pack is not suited for multi-day hikes. I found that anything more than 20 lbs overwhelms the suspension and cause the pack to sag. Coupled with a minimally padded hipbelt and lack of torso adjustment, the pack is simply not comfortable for multi-day hikes. On the bright side, the Outdry material is impervious to water, and coupled with a roll-top design the main compartment is completely watertight. I recently hiked the Grand Canyon and easily rinsed the dust off in the streams and waterfalls without anything getting wet. The bottom of the pack is also a roll-top closure, so you don't have to empty the entire pack to retrieve something from the bottom. The stretch stash pocket is amazing- I never realized how handy it was to have one, but the mesh is not abrasion resistant and after a couple trips in the mountains I had several holes in the stash/side pockets that needed mending. There's also no security clip in the lid for your keys, so you'll have to find a safe place for them elsewhere. The biggest complaint I have are the terrible hipbelt pockets. They are tapered and extremely shallow- I couldn't even fit a Clif bar inside. Forget about a GPS unit, camera, or smartphone. How these ever passed testing is beyond me. I'd only recommend this pack if you don't care about the hipbelt pockets and your base weight is less than 20 lbs e.g. hut-to-hut, frontcountry, overnighters. For weekenders and multiday trips, go with the Ozonic series. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So boss This thing is legit I've I've put it through the wringer this past season. Only two gripes are the hip belt has two small pockets... One fits a key and the other a candy bar. Should be larger to hold at LEAST an iPhone. Second gripe is the mesh is amazing but all my mesh pockets have torn from snags or putting things into them... Nothing sharp just zippers and such I guess. PS: Bottom unrolls too which is a nice thing if you just want to drop things out the bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flawed awesome bag. Everything Mountain Hardwear says about this pack is true. It's light weight, waterproof, and comfortable. Being able to access the pack from the bottom is pretty cool. For me having a external water reservoir is a must. I feel there is one tragic mistake on this pack. The hip belt pockets are useless. I was able to squeeze a snack bar in but it was physically impossible to get it out with the pack on. I own 7 packs of all sizes they all had relatively functional hip belt pockets. I don't see how when prototyping this bag that this was thought to be the way to go. If this were fixed the pack would be perfect.
