so so great! Just got it today and tried it on and looked at it... I just took my larger Gregory Whitney on a camping trip and I wanted something smaller with fewer straps that would still be versatile and this fits the bill nicely. The construction of the bag is top notch with some really clever and sensible design features. I actually bought the 50 and the 60 to see which size I'd like better, but I'm keeping them both and my husband can use the 60.
not an expedition sized bag like the whitney this one seems better for trips of 4-5 days. Really lightweight which will be nice and the padding is great. Harness fit system is very clever and intuitive. Can't wait to take it to the woods.
Lastly I thought the red might be garish or orangey but it's quite good actually.
