    Haven't really tried it on long journey yet. But, it seems very lightweight and heavy-duty. Large capacity, which reduces number of bags while I am traveling.
    Few things which I am unsatisfied are, stains on the side of the bag, looks like someone stepped on it. Haven't tried washing it off. Another is hanging threads from the rain cover zip.

    The Outbound Assault 65 Backpack is well designed, reasonably light weight, and carries a load very well due to it's highly adjustable design. Great construction. Some very useful internal pockets on both sides and the back, make packing it easier. I used it last weekend, in some very steep, rocky terrain starting out at about 4,000ft altitude, and up to about 9,000ft, for 3 days, 2 nights. and other than thinking it could be more convenient to have two compartments rather than a top loader, (but I used stuff sacks to keep food and clothing more accessible), and perhaps an external netting pouch on the outside for water bottles, it has everything I like in an internal frame backpack. I would recommend this pack.

    I chose this pack because of its price and for the suspension. It is larger than I really need, but to get a good hip-belt and some airflow around my back I had to go with a bigger pack. I use it mostly for back-country skiing, where I need to haul a bunch of safety items (and skis! it has that great ski-slot!), so the large volume is sometimes welcome. In the off-seasons I use it for hiking, and at first I found the internal frame too tall (either because its too big for me or just because that's the way the design is) so that I hit the pack with the back of my head. Then I had the bright idea to just loosen the shoulder straps so that the pack falls away from my back, and I love that. The hip belt is plenty strong to carry my small summer load, and I get even more air flow around my back.

    The only thing I haven't gotten used to yet is the plethora of straps in odd places. It must be extrodinarily versatile, but until I find that I need all those straps its just annoying.

    Took out for 3 days on AT. Nice pack for the $$. No real problems with the pack that I can tell. Does lack snap buckles on the bottom to attach sleeping pad, but one can find a set to add or attach vertically on sides.

    Over all good pack.
