Wonderful bag. Took it on a hike with a bunch of Cubs and loaded it down with all sorts. I'm amazing that a bag that seems so compact can hold so much. Definitely bigger on the inside then it seems. The oversized pockets on the sides are a great addition. I attached one of the Cubs bags to the front at one point. Due to the well thought out harness and straps I could barely feel the additional weight. Highly recommended!!
I've had the pleasure of using the new multicam SR25 a couple of times now on some hunts and i can't fault it. It's built very well out of solid materials and has a surprising amount of room in it.
I've been using a 22L pack for a long while now and decided to try this pack and it seems to hold a lot more gear in it for only being a couple Liters bigger. It's also much more modular than my old pack which is another bonus. Plus it's Aussie made. What more can you want, the pack is a little ripper i definitely rate it!!
I have used the new SR25 for a period of time now and find it to be an excellent small to mid sized pack great for day walks and big enough for an overnight outing in warmer conditions (unless you strap the sleeping bag to the outside). It is really comfortable and has some really innovative features. It fits a surprising amount of gear in it and rides very well. The side pouches will fit nalgene 1L water bottles in them easily , adding to the pack's utility. All the pockets seem to be of the right size and in the right spot for what i need.
Overall i rate it very highly and i am very glad i found it !!!
I've now been using this pack for over 2 years and everything that's said here has stood the test. I teach bushcraft and use the pack weekly so it's seen a lot of use and there's not a stitch out of place. It's repelled dirt, kept out rain and there's not a scratch or tear on it... And I don't treat it softly. Quality packs that stand the test of time...Guaranteed.
This pack outperforms trendy brands by a long margin. The quality and durability become apparent after weeks of extensive, heavy and varied use. Full length side pockets are genius and the roll-top allows for extra, dust-proof capacity. Molle where it should be, daisy chain where it's needed. Aluminium/poly clips revolutionize the fastener game.
Thanks to the HRO team for keeping aussie- made at the top where it belongs!
