I own several backpacks. I was looking for a backpack for rucking purposes (hiking with a weighted backpack), normally carrying up to 45 pounds worth of weights, water, and gear. At first, I was using a Maxpedition pygmy falcon ii, and that was a great backpack. The only issue I had with that pack was there was no accommodation for a hydration bladder, and it looked quite small on my large back. I came across this backpack after doing some research, and as soon as I received it, I fell in love with it.
Pros: 1. Lightweight. The backpack isn't all that heavy, which is great if you're planning to carry lots of things with you. 2. Tough and sturdy materials. I normally carry up to 45 pounds worth of stuff in my pack when I go hiking/trail walking. I feel totally confident using this pack for my needs. 3. Layout. I've been using this pack for a couple of weeks now, and I absolutely love the layout. The pockets are great, there's a nice admin pocket...
Great pack for the buck. Prior to getting the Kelty Peregrine 1800, I was using a Kelty MAP 3500 for my busy college schedule. This Peregrine pack is of highest build quality, materials are of high quality. The pack is roughly about the same size as traditional jansport backpack.
I love this pack. This is the best "small" pack I have had. It has several great features from the metal loop style internal support that holds form and distributes weight without feeling restrictive like a frame, to the shoulder straps that are beyond adjustable. I wi be picking up Kelty's MAP 3500 pack in this line this winter and I can not wait.
