It’s a great hiking or pocket fixed blade. It carries comfortably and has a fantastic sheath. I consider the White River Backpacker Pro the gold standard when it comes to EDC fixed blades as it is the most comfortable to carry and capable small fixed that I have found. The Rainier Fastpak does not have anywhere near the quality of finishing as the Backpacker Pro but it has unique features, a useful shape and it’s Elmax! For the price of the standard Backpacker.
