It is is great system for moutain biking, day hiking, sled dog training etc. Active people wil love this whole new concept. It makes sudden movements really easy so I could bend, dodge and evade objects easily when training on the trails with Taiga. It also rests perfect on the hips so the load distribution is optimal. As I said before, it feels weird in the first couple of minutes but it really rides wel on my back! I like the easy adjustments in the carry system and think it is a very good concept that one can change bags on the same system to fit different needs. Maybe the current vertepac bags are a bit to smal for long term stays in the wild and for winter camping but I read that these Vertepac guys have some tricks up their sleeves for the near future!" - Mike & Taiga - Tikaani Outdoor
