Review: Field & Stream Pack

I received this Field & Stream hip-pack from my birder father-in-law a few years back for Christmas.  It has seen many adventures with me as it totted my field guide, notebook and pen, mosquito spray, and usually a bottle of water.  Its been saturated with water and covered with mud a few times, but as you can see from the photo, it has endured the wear and tear very well.   

I can't find this exact pouch for sale anywhere online, but if it is typical of Field & Stream products, than I am a fan.  There isn't anything too fancy about it.  Its got different pockets and clips.  It is easily adjustable around my waist which seems to expand and contract on a regular basis. 

I have just started using a vest when birding and my little pack here as been relegated to holding two or three field guides in my truck.  In recent months I have been birding field-guide-less; forcing myself to look harder and take better field notes of new birds, but I hope to be able to continue using this little pack for many years to come.
