Being in the Army I have seen the advent of Blackhawk over 10 years ago. The idea was much needed. The products are generally spot on. This lightweight pack is perfect for EOC use, which is my purchase plan. It, in my opinion, should not be used in operations as the material is not designed for extensive field abuse.
Pros: lightweight, good design, good company
Cons: still a little pricy
