Eberlestock Destroyer Pack
SKU #: Eberlestock-V69
The V69 Destroyer is a conventional-class backpack with unconventional features. They are more fully detailed than most packs in this class. In the tradition of our focus on practical field use, we've built the 60 liter (3660 cubic inch) V69 Destroyer and 99 liter (6050 cubic inch) V90 Battleship to be extremely capable and comfortable load bearing systems. With very similar features, the main difference between the two is one of scale. Choose the slightly more compact V69 if you need smaller capacity and prefer to go as light as possible. Choose the larger V90 if you simply need to get serious and haul some big loads. For its scale, this pack is extremely light weight. We've carefully chosen new materials that give the optimum balance between high strength and light weight, and arranged them very cleverly, if we do say so ourselves. Every feature and detail has a purpose, and many of them have multiple purposes.
Includes full rain cover, which stows in a pocket on the bottom of the pack. Compatible with either WXP3L or WB2L hydration bladders (two bladder compartments; one on each side of pack).

The destroyer pack is overall a decent pack, I'm currently three weeks into my six month backpack trip and only a couple minor complaints. The nylon isn't the toughest, but I suppose they chose it on purpose to reduce the weight. The main compartment is spacious with a draw string to seperate it into two compartments, they have two side pockets alongside the internal wall of the main compartment but I wish they would have added more. Theres plenty of molle around the outside of the bag to add attachments and a little in the inside. On the top of the bag theres two pockets with zippers for easy access, under the top of the bag is a storm cover with another draw string, you can actually pull out the storm cover a little bit to increase the volume of the main compartment which comes in handy. I don't know if they did it on purpose but the shoulder straps are very thin with no cushion which causes the pack to pinch your shoulders making it uncomfortable at times. The plastic buckle for the chest strap is weak as it snapped off the shoulder strap under very little strain (my pack is currently 19.32 pounds) and has no left me with no chest strap which sucks. They have three handels around the pack making the pack easy to manuver off or on your body quickly, they are located at the top and the sides of the pack. At the bottom of the pack is a pocket which holds a rain cover attached to the pack which is useful in rainy situations. Theres plenty of suppression straps throughout the bag to make it as small as possible and the ones on the bottom are large enough to fit a small sleeping bag and sleeping mat. The internal frame is easy to chamge to make the pack contour to your body and theres plenty of padding for your hip and back. Overall its a decent pack for the price aside from the weak buckle it hasn't failed me so far but maybe not the best pack for a travelling backpacker
ProsSpacious main compartment Lots of molle Decently lightweight Attached raincover Handels on the top and along the sides
ConsWeak chest buckle Thin nylon No padding on the shoulder straps

Eberlestock Destroyer Pack
Great pack, Light for its size, a little too light. Ive owned the half track and the factrack, this fabric is a little too lightweight, nothing has really ripped or anything on it, but it just feels a little weak. some of the stitching inside on one of the panels came undone, but they remedied the problem, took it in to get stitched and got reimbursed. I havn't pushed it yet, but like I said the fabric feels weak. amazing pack though, just wish it was a little bit heavier duty fabric. still would buy another and recommend to others to buy, just have to be a little more careful and maybe do a couple repairs every once and a while, which is alright I suppose.

What are the dimensions of the main internal pocket and sleep system pocket when the divider is used?
Okay, by my measurement the sleeping system compartment is as follows - 13" height x 12" width x 7" depth - so your looking at about a 1092 cubic inches in volume. The main compartment is as follows - 16" height x 12" width x 7" depth - so about 1344 cubic inches in volume for that compartment.
