"I just bought one of your Odyssey backpacks to add to my Tough Traveler collection, which I took on its first day hike today at Blakely State park in southern Alabama.... When I lifted the bag up to put it on I was worried with how heavy I had loaded it. Once I got it on, it suddenly seemed lighter for some reason. I had my girlfriend try on the fully loaded pack and she noticed the same thing. Something about the way it sits against the small of my back must make the pack feel lighter. We hiked 4 miles to our lunch site and the pack was very comfortable and balanced feeling the entire way. Thank you so much for such a wonderful pack as well as all of my other bags. I'm so glad that your bags are still made in the USA and such good quality...”
