With ankle problems, it supports me as I work on my abs. I have actually flattened what I thought was impossible. You begin to see results within two weeks. but it's a great product!. . granted you do your exercising religiously. I did three sets of 10 each day and am very happy with the results! I am not young and the metabolism has slowed down.
I'm looking forward to many trips with my new bag!. I LOVE this backpack. The only thing that would be nice is some form of a zipper or closure down the side, it is a bit "silo-ed" meaning, the only way to grab what I have at the bottom of the bag, is to take everything above it out, which for my purposes, was absolutely okay by me. I recently purchased, and then used this backpack for a weekend trip to Chicago. It was perfect for a trip like this (business mixed with pleasure) I was able to store my tablet and documents in a protected pouch in the back of the pack (up next to the back), and my clothing and other items in the rest.
Came securely packaged and am happy with the purchase. Need compartments in a pack that also expandable then look no further. Haven't had a chance to trek with it yet but love the storage and mole.
It is very rugged and made out of a heavy duty material that will last along time. The material is so thick it will last through many different climates and harsh conditions. It has many pockets of various sizes and lots of webbing on outside for attaching things to it. It has padded shoulder straps and a waist strap to even out the weight. I am very impressed with the quality of this bad and would like to purchase more to give to our sons as gifts. I received this bag at a discounted price in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. Im VERY impressed with this backpack. I highly recommend this bag even if you are in the Military. This is an Awesome backpack. If i could give it 10 stars; I would! My husband was in the military for 18 years and he is not happy this is not for him.
Used these for a mud run but had to add laces. I highly recommend these even for every day use. Let me tell you these worked out swimmingly. The holes in the bottom provide great ventilation for the feet so they keep you cool even on the hottest of days. The mud did get a little stuck in the holes but after a run through a water obstacle it came right out. The shoes did not squish when exiting the water, and all of our friends regretted not purchasing them. (Originally they laughed at us but we got the last laugh) These shoes are also great for general workouts when you do not need a lot of support, and for walking.
