The name says it all. BIG ____ MOTHERLODE. With over 47L of cargo and a 3L, 100oz Mil Spec Reservoir that provides 25% more water per sip, the new BFM is perfect for extended missions. The new Futura harness, which adjusts for individual torso length and plate carrier configurations, stays comfortable on even the longest of operations.
Took this on a 20 mile hike through the mountains. It was loaded to about 34 lbs including water weight on an extremely challenging 2 day hike. All of the different storage throughout the pack made it extremely convenient to access different items stored separately. The water bladder was extremely easy to fill with the built in handle. All of the exterior straps to hook items made it convenient to access flashlights and radios when needed. Despite the empty weight of the bag being a little on the heavy side, it is extremely durable. I hit it on rock overhangs many many times and it would not tear. Also the two side pockets can hold a full size water bottle if you need extra water for a hike with few sources.
I’ve been hiking most of my life (a good 20-25 years) and I have always been “in to” packs. I’ve gone through a lot of them.
Great at what it does. Only wish it wold hold my laptop in a seperate padded comparment and not in the main. Desktop replacement dosnt fit anywhere else unless i take out the hydration and thats counter productive to having the Camelbak.
Great pack! I’m 6’ 4”, this pack is more comfortable than I imagined, and super easy to adjust to any frame. Absolutely amazing!
