Rated 3 out of 5áby DF187 Trapper Pack Basket
Love the idea, but the execution is of concern. Specifically, the straps are fairly narrow and are made with lighter weight material that makes it not the most comfortable to carry and worries me that the wear and tear of the straps will give out sooner? A slightly wider and reinforced strap would certainly be an improvement..

It has the features that I wanted but I would have liked a chest strap for a more secure fit when hiking. I will add a strap to mine. Also shoulder straps do have a tendency to slip.

Wish it was bigger. Well made and very unique. Was looking for a "belly" type basket, but this will do.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TomCNY Withstands a load
This bag as everyone has said is well made, large enough to pack a sizeable, heavy load and is pretty comfortable under those loads compared to some other packs I use. This was purchased as a day pack for porting tools and supplies for trail maintenance. I have used it a couple of times so far and it has performed well. My only observations are that it would benefit from an integrated sternum strap. I am 5'8"and have what I would say an average shoulder width. Since the pack is made one size fits all, this would allow a slight adjustment to pull in the shoulder straps and stabilize the pack better (especially when worn over a nylon shell). Second, the webbing appears to be a little to thick or wide for the buckles on the shoulder straps. Mine will not release when pulled up on when I want to take the pack off as all my backpack straps do. Luckily I am able to slip the pack on/off with the straps adjusted to the shorter length due I think the to back panel being a smooth material. Maybe they will break in over time, but right now any adjustments to length of the straps has to be done with the pack on the ground.
Overall a good buy for the price.

I am slowly losing my Dad, an ADK 46er, to Alzheimer's. I love the Adirondacks and he has given me several packbaskets. This is a very versitile and pleasing to the eye pack, and I will use it the rest of my life remembering times we shared in the mountains, then pass it on when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RoughOnEquipment Trapper Pack
This pack is not just for trappers. I purchased the Trapper Pack and cannot say enough about its quality. As a Alaskan hunting guide this pack has been with me constantly for over 3 weeks and it looks as good as new. I use my equipment hard, most gear never makes it a full season, yet I expect this pack will last much longer... If you are looking for a large easy to carry pack this is the one.

For those of you who shoot damascus, fish bamboo, play with hickory shafts, and paddle cedar strip, this is just the ticket.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sarentz Trapper pack-waxed canvas
Great product! I have had this bag for several months now and use it for everything. It is large enough to hold several days worth of clothing, a great day pack, I even take it on business trips as my carry on luggage. Everyone asks me about where I got the great bag! I am planning to buy a second one to keep in my car with extra clothing and gear for impromptu fly fishing trips.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pharmacyguy amazing bag
Just received this today and I am absolutely amazed at the quality and carrying capacity of this bag. The leather is absolutely beautiful and very heavy and the waxed canvas feels like it is ready to take a lot of abuse. I put 5 beach towels and my swim shorts in it as a test and it could still hold a bit more. I will get a great deal of use using this at the beach, the boat and the mountains. Another great well built product from ll bean!! If you are looking for a multi use bag for work or recreation, look no further, this bag will do the job you need and look great doing it. I can see taking it on a day hike or a weekend away. Nice nice nice...
