Looks more like the same capacity as the "Great Basin" to me, interestingly about the same price as the Great Basin as well.
WE STAND CORRECTED! With apologies and egg on my face, the corrected volume of the final production model Fort Rock Top Case is 85.5 liters (using beans as our measuring medium). Just updated our website. My 120-liter figure was based on an earlier prototype bag, which was boxier in shape and wider on both sides. I neglected to update the specs.

Please return your Fort Rock Top Case for a full refund if you are not completely 100% satisfied.
