I use it for deer hunting. I'm a saddle hunter so I carry my sticks and platform on it along with all of my winter gear, it gets cold here and sometimes 1 jacket isn't enough so I throw usually thermals, 2 sweatshirts and 2 jackets, pajama pants, pants thermals and a few pairs of gloves, lots of hand and toe warmers, socks and other misc stuff and haven't been able to fill it up yet. It looks small when you take it out of the box but once you open the straps up the thing is massive. Some of my favorite things about it is, the warranty, the pistol holster, the reinforced webbing and camelback. I use it about once a week right now for shed hunting and fishing and pretty much anytime I hit the woods, in the winter it'll be daily. All other bags I've torn the webbing on but this look indestructible.
