Load range meaning - The weight which the pack feels very comfortable and stable with.
You can easily carry a heavier load, but it will slightly decrease comfort. You can carry a much heavier load without worrying about the pack durability.
Very comfortable for a military grade pack. Not on the same level as an Osprey but better most tactical style backpacks – excellent weight distribution
Top shelf materials and components.
Good price especially when compared to other brands.
While comfortable I would like to see a slight redesign to the back as it could become even more comfortable with some padding. This would also assist with breathability or sweat.
That leads to the next point, VERY poor breathability. You are going to be soaked wearing this pack if you are going to go any sort of distance with any level of exertion.
Because of the lack of ventilation, this is a very hot pack.
Light on webbing and attachment points.
