I'm 6' 1" 260lb broad shoulders with a barrel chest and was having a hard time finding a pack that fit nice and snug around my big frame for backpacking. The very adgustable waistbelt is long and wide enough to sit on my size 40 waist and actually support the load. Bag stayed snugly on my back for once. Was able to wear a tank top without the shoulder straps cutting into my arms with just enough support packing a little over 50lbs for a 4 day backpacking trip. Pack seems very durable and I'm glad it's missing bells and whistles feeling lean and mean. My only complaint is that the front pocket isn't raised off of the main pack body so you have to pack it first. I'm looking forward to my next trip knowing that I finally have a backpack thats extremely comfterble and lightweight.
