I ordered this to add to the capacity of my mother. It straps to the bottom and rides great. This is very versatile and you will be amazed at how much you can fit inside. I really like that I can tie it around a tree and have gear right near my shelter. Combine this with the mother and you can survive in the woods for a week with the gear you can haul! Like all the other gear here it’s very well made and you just can not argue with a good American designed and made piece of kit!
