Garcia of the United States Army purchased a Maxpedition Fatboy /
Anemone / M-1 combination
..the first thing I did was to take it on a trek across the entire length of a trail here in the Franklin Mountains called Smugglers Trail. The highest peak is close to 6000ft elevation.
It held up great. I wore the Fatboy with the Anemone. I left the M-1 off for the hike because of the size. I didn't know it was going to be that big!
But the pack did great.
It rode comfortably, and it held quite a bit of kit. I had 3 water
bottles, my Gerber tool, about 150 feet of 550 cord, 2 D-rings on the
outside, some snacks, GPS, digital camera, and a few other items.
