I have used this pack on several high mountain backpacking trips. If anything it is a little too large which only encourages you to bring more stuff than you may actually need. Very adjustable unless you are small waisted, in which case you may have a hard time getting the waist belt snug enough to properly place the weight on your hips, which we all know is key in long hikes. But the features are superb. I just ordered a second one for my 17 year old son. One of my favorite features is that the top comes off and easily converts into a fanny/day pack with its own waist belt. We like to set up a base camp from which to do several day hikes and the top is perfect for that. Also very important to me is the separate sleeping bag compartment on the bottom. We all know how annoying it can be to have to empty your entire pack to get to your sleeping bag. With this pack that is not a problem as the bottom compartment holds my sleeping bag, bag liner, beenie and rain jacket.
