I wasn't sure I was going to like this pack at first. It is pretty big and I was disappointed there was no zingers (aka lanyards). I fell in love with the front magnetic pocket. I also really like the stripping basket. It packs away nicely and doesn't give the pack any more bulk. This pack can hold quite a bit. I really like the drink holders. They are small but that's a good thing. If they were larger it would make the pack very heavy. I hiked maybe 3 miles on pretty rugged trail. I can honestly say after maybe 5min of walking I forgot I was even wearing a pack. It stayed very secure while I was walking and didn't slide around at all while I scaled over downed trees and logs. I'm very happy with the purchase and this is a perfect replacement for my chest pack.
