    I get excited about proper backpacks. this pack served me well on a monthlong trip that was part wilderness hiking, part city backpacking vacation. its good in all the ways i needed it to be. enough compartments of good size, but not so many that you forget where everything is. lots of strap possibilities to afix your gear to the outside when its too dirty to put in with the rest of your stuff (wet tent and sweaty socks etc...) my favorite part about the pack was the completely removable top. buy a 3 foot long 18mm wide strap of webbing and turn the top into a messenger style daypack that fits a rain shell, camera, waterbottle, and a few apples (all in all probably about 4L of space). the hip padding leaves a little to be desired, as in, its stiff and tough. i had bruises and sore spots my whole trip, but maybe they will soften over the years i expect to use this pack. definitely recommend!

    bought one for a teenage boy, then bought a second based on his review. Comfortable, lots of storage. Best for modest trips - a few nights.

    Workmanship is good as are fitting adjustments.
    Sleeping bag compartment is too small. Hip pad buckle is tricky

    The material appears to be sturdy enough, the padding on the hip and shoulders is suffficient, and I got this thing for a song. I am only an overnighter, so the large capacity is probably overkill, but the zippers are much more difficult to work with than I had hoped. I am sure I will learn their nuances soon enough.

    Recieved this pack and immediatley loaded it with my gear from another pack. It loaded easy (really like the bottom sleeping bag compartment)
    This pack is light wieght with the convienience of side pockets and rear compartment, a good balance.
    Will use on my typical Colorado wilderness 3-4 day trips.

    Needed a larger pack for "comfort" backpacking. This pack has all the features (including a bottom access panel)without weighing a ton. Very comfortable and stitching is strong. Good zippers and smart layout as well. I will use on all weekend trips when ultralight backpacking is not required.

    this isn't the lightest pack, but it's probably one of the toughest...durable, reliable, and it'll be there when you need it.

    counting the pack, I usually have about 30-40 Lbs on, and it does a real good job. I go out for at least 3 nights at a time, and it gets me there AND back.

    Bought this as an upgrade from a JanSport external frame pack that was a hand me down. I love the large space inside the main compartment. On a trip I am able to fit my whole two person tent, sleeping pad, clothes sack, food sack, and my signed copy of 50 Shades of Gray. Ok I kidding on that last one.

    I also love the side pockets. Having those was important to me when searching for a new pack. This way I have easy access to headlamps, first aid kit, etc.

    The top compartment was surprisingly pretty water resistant. I had a paper map in the top part and was hiking in the rain (steady normal rain/mist - not a down pour) but forgot my pack cover. The map was dry at the end of the day.

    The only problem to me are the zippers. Not sure if they need awhile to break in but they are sometimes hard to open/close.
