😒N O I S Y☹️!
I really wanted to like this pack like everything else, Sitka, but it's going back, unfortunately.
Fits female frame (even XL bust) well.
Large, ample pockets.
Comfortable when full (tested to 30 lbs with approval)
N O I S Y...!
Cheap plastic (unusual for Sitka!)
Very loud & "crinkly" sounding.
No accessible pockets at waist (for phone, calls, kleenex, chapstick, glasses, etc.)
I've loved everything I have that's Sitka, except this.
The fit for females, even with a big bust (34DDD) is very good /comfortable. It's just ridiculously NOISY. I can't believe it's not made from that soft, quiet material??! I also don't like that there aren't any "accessible" pockets for small stuff at the waist, like elk calls, glasses, kleenex, little stuff like that.
So, in conclusion, it's a nice pack if you're not going hunting with it, or if you like to carry a purse with your pack on, or if you want to alert the game that you're on your way to kill it.
Sorry, Sitka. I actually feel bad leaving this review but, please take the recommendations, redesign the pack, and I'll buy it again. :)
