Great Product!
Wonderful product for Multi-day or weekend trips. I purchased a small/medium and was able to achieve a perfect fit for my 5'7'' 145 lb frame. Took it out for a packrafting and hiking trip and absolutely love everything about this pack. This will be my go to pack from now on.

Zulu 55 is great for backpacking #sweepstake
It is comfortable, ventilated and relatively light weight. I use it for backpacking for half an year, the U zip front opening provide easy access for items. Free float system provides stability and comfort during walking.
Though the design was not fit for hand carry, u may take the risk of oversizing to carry it on.

Recommend this pack for backpacking and weekend trips.

Quality pack
I purchased the Zulu 55 for backpack camping trips of 2 to 3 days. At the advertised weight of about 61 oz., it may be a little heavier than some other packs, but the quality of the pack really shines. The adjustable fit should adjust to the range of body sizes, as advertised. I'm about average height (59"), and the pack fit me perfectly as it was packaged without adjustment. The hydration pocket easily accepts my 3-liter Camelbak bladder. My expected total weight of the pack and contents will be in the range of 34 to 35 pounds, including food and water, and I am confident this pack will be comfortable (not using until spring '20).

Most comfortable pack ever
Just the right size for a few nights out. Fits a bear canister inside with still enough room for everything else. Waist belt is the most comfortable I've used. Side pockets are accessible without taking the pack off. Great load distribution...feels like you're carrying less weight than you really are.
