Great pack for the price

This is a fantastic pack. Has the right amount of zippered pockets for organizing gear. I mainly wanted a pack where the weight would stay close to me...so many packs these days have air-flow backs which end up making the pack pull away and feel unbalanced. This one sits right on my spine. Yes, the straps are thinner and buckles are smaller but how do you expect them to make such a large pack only 3lbs? Only features I miss are having a sideways entrance to the water bottle pocket for easier grabbing and a mesh front. The cloth front is good but might make drying wet things harder.
