I purchased a SWD pack 2 years ago and have been in love ever since.  I thru-hiked the AT with a heavy Osprey pack in 2014 and am super happy with my decision to go ''ultra-light''.  My SWD holds all of my gear comfortably and I've had as much as 7 days worth of food on me at a time.  I don't have to worry about carrying a pack cover anymore either, which has been nice -- I use Sea-To-Summit dry-bags for my sleeping bag and clothing and a contractor bag as a liner for everything -- no problems so far!  I did apply a seam sealer as well.  I also really love how easy it is to remove the frame.  Once it's removed, the bag can literally be turned inside out which makes cleaning and any sewing repairs easy.  The price point of the SWD pack is great, too -- way lower than some of their bigger named competitors.  I'm a trail guide in the Catskills and spend a lot of time on trail, so it's nice to have a good, light-weight, reliable pack.  I've recommended it to many of my clients, and I know at least 3 of my recommendations have resulted in happy customers.

First of all their customer service is outstanding, they provided help both through email and over social media. They even emailed pictures of their pack showing a bear can inside that I had requested. This was the first semi-custom pack I had ordered and I had a lot of questions that they always answered promptly. The available options that they can add to their packs and their ability to work outside the box was fantastic. I will admit I was a bit nervous to order from a relatively new company that didn't have many reviews, but I can say I'm certainly glad I did! The stitching and craftsmanship is excellent and what you would expect at this price point for a top tier pack. It rides very comfortably for the short test I did around the house with 25lbs inside, I'll submit another review after I've been able to put some miles on the pack.

Just recieved my 35L pack and I'm in love! I had about 26lbs in it and it rode the hips like a champ! It's a work of functional art. It's going to serve me well on the PCT. :) Thanks SWD!
Oh and the shoulder strap pocket is perfect. My phone (even with case) fits in it perfectly!

Amazing customer service! Brandon answered more questions than I can count and never made me feel like I was asking dumb questions (something unfortunately common in the UL community). My custom pack is fantastic and I can't wait to get it on the trails!
