Older version of the ravine is still going strong 20years later!
I bought the older model of this pack in 1994. Looks the same as the picture so I thought I would review it. This is the perfect bag for hiking. Large enough to hold or your gear but not so large that you can't carry it. Slim line and without stupid pockets everywhere so you don't get caught on vegetation. Only zip on mine is at the top pocket. Minimal zips equals less problems and better waterproofing. Great adjustable and comfortable harness.This bag has hiked with me for a month long stint in east gippsland Victoria and has travelled with me through the himalayas for more than a month too. It has survived many, many other smaller adventures, but I was not kind to this bag and it is still strong 20years later. How is that for quality? One of the better products I have ever bought.
Lasts forever, perfect for serious hiking and situations where you will be actually carrying your bag a lot.
This is not the best choice for back packers doing the youth hostel circuit. The things like, only one top loading space, that make it great for hiking, make it annoying for general travel where a suitcase or travel pack may serve better.
Strong, looks good (not that it matters too much), big top pocket.
I backpacked around Australia with this pack, was perfect!
This is a good durable backpack, can fit a lot of stuff but not too bulky
only has the one pocket on the top, could do with a couple more.
