    I use this backpack as a large daypack for my environmental education programs. I carry a lot of gear, large first aid kit and books and they all fit easily in this backpack. It's comfortable, even with a large and heavy load. The padding with air circulation design for your back make it comfortable without getting a sweaty back. It has enough diversity of options for storage, without being too overloaded with bells and whistles. It's great to have the option to extend the size which is helpful when I need to pack in a little extra gear.

    Needed a smaller, lighter pack for overnight alpine excursions that could be cinched down as a summit pack. Was able to fit a bear canister, tent, sleeping bag & pad inside, plus attach strap crampons, helmet, ice tool & axe, and pickets to the outside. Pack was exceptionally comfortable with all this gear and was not awkward when having to go off trail in steep terrain.

    I love everything about it so far. It has the largest range of sizing adjustment that I found and it's really easy to move around to get it to fit just right. All of the pockets are super useful and I love the bottom access with the option to seal it off. Would definitely recommend!

    First impressions.
    Weight/Fit Rides comfortably. Gives you the ability to adjust it to fit. Does the job nicely. While not ultra-lite, it is still not a heavy pack, that when properly adjusted, sits comfortably on the body.
    Storage Room: I am able to put my tent, sleeping bag, pag and have plenty of room left over. Love the 40+10 configuration. Also love the access from above and below. Has an inner seperation panel (zippable) that you can choose to use or not.
    Other stuff: Seems to be comparable with the other backpacks for giving extra pockets and tie-down points to attach equipment to the outside of the pack.
    Overall: Haven't had a chance to take this out on a camping trip, but on a quick hike and loading it up at the house it is a comfortable and appears to be able to hold my basic camping needs.

    This pack is great. Once I received it I had it perfectly fitted to my torso in about 10 minutes. The adjustment is easy and quick. The pack itself is also seemingly infinitely adjustable. The top can be loosened for extra room (the +10 in the name) which allows for quite a bit of extra room. The front pocket (shown with a helmet in it) can stretch to cover just about anything, from a wet travel towel to the haft of an axe. And the top of the sleeping bag compartment can be opened to form one large compartment accessible from the top of the bag or through the bottom sleeping bag hatch. Straps on the sides are made for poles but can hold much anything that will slide into it (like an axe) or that you could loop onto it, even a small capped nalgene. Back keeps contact to your back at a minimum so that sweat doesn't gather. Over all a great bag, I waited for big coupon and got it for 30% off too. No way you could get a better bag for that money.
