  • an excellent overnight or weekend pack

    by Josh – 2nd Jun 2015

    I have been in the market for a light, small pack for a while, but I wasn't looking forward to dropping a minimum of $115 on a 30-something liter pack. The watchman caught my eye because it was in the style that I wanted.

    First of all, this IS NOT a "you get what you pay for" pack. I had my suspicions, but I reasoned that if this pack was a bust I'd only be out $60 as opposed to twice that. The material and the stitching is high quality, similar to my 60L gregory. I love the simplicity of this pack. The main loading compartment is accessible in 3 different places on the pack. Access to the top via a cinch tight closure. Access to the front of the pack from behind the front pocket via zipper and on the bottom inside the sleeping bag pocket.

    I was able to fit my eno single nest hammock, bug net, tree straps, and sleeping bag liner inside the sleeping bag pocket. In the front pocket I fit my folding saw, spade and extra fuel for my stove, the lid help toiletries, first aid, hooch and 3ds. The main compartment held my food, clothes, 2 liter GP bladder and other essentials. I had my pack filled with what I needed and it felt really good.


    The weight was light and I was much less fatigued than my friends with their 60 liter packs. The weight was evenly distributed and I am overall very satisfied. It's a high quality pack with a really low price.

    Now there are two things I disliked about this pack that kept me from giving it a full 5 stars.

    The first thing was the more forgivable of the two and that is the hole for the hose of the hydration bladder. Even with the GP bladder I still still had a hard time fitting the large bite valve through the small hole. It took me nearly 2 minutes of continuous effort to fit the hose through the hole (which led to a lot of "that's what she said" jokes between the guys). I call this a forgivable error because once its in place I just forget about it until I need to refill.

    The other thing I really disliked is the large strap with a hook and loop system that tightens down the main compartment on top of the bag. The seam of the stitching for the loop is inside of the loop where the hook passes through. So when I need to open my pack I have to remove the hook. Well nearly every time I try to unhook the strap from the loop the hook gets caught on the seam. And it takes me several attempts to angle the hook the right way so the seam doesn't get caught. This happened on my hike during a break. I tried taking the hook out from the loop and it got caught, I tried again and again but the hook kept catching the seam of the loop. I became really frustrated and when I thought I nearly had it I jerked the hook, hoping the hook would come off the loop. Instead the hook caught the seam again. I pulled with so much force that the entire pack flew off the ground and I heard a pop. A stitch that connects the front pocket to the pack ripped loose when I pulled on the pack. Its still in good shape but the pocket looks noticeable looser on one side than it does on the other. It hurts every time I think about that moment. But on the bright side I should have done far more damage had this been a poorly designed pack.

    PROS--
    Inexpensive
    High quality manufacturing
    Light weight
    Lots of storage for a 35L
    Looks sexy

    CONS--
    tight exit hole for the bladder hose
    Hook and loop strap doesn't unhook easily.

    If you're on the fence about this pack, get it. You'll be very happy.
