The same goes for Red Rock and a whole bunch of others. This does look somewhat better than some other clones I've seen (or bought), but the Maxpedition is the original. None of them, including the Maxpedition, are any good for carrying long distances IMHO. Throwing in and out of a car, sure. For the wilderness you want something more stable, with a wider profile and better straps - again, IMHO.
