I have use Alps Mountaineering products for many years and have never had any issues. I am a Scoutmaster for a Scouts BSA Troop and we have had great luck with the Alps gear. I have been looking for a new external frame backpack - they are VERY hard to find these days. I was thrilled to find the Bryce 59 External Frame Pack on Bob Wards website. The best thing was that it was one sale. I am one happy camper!!!
