I did a lot of research before buying a pack and am very glad I chose this one. The heat molded hip belt makes it fit great and the overall design, quality, and padding of the back and shoulder straps makes it a very comfortable pack. Very light too; just over 5 pounds. Detachable day pack top is actually really nice. Great size and quality.
Recently received this pack as a gift this past year and it has been awesome. I've used it on two backpacking trips and I cant believe how much space there is. Plus it is super lightweight even though its a bigger pack and has a lot of useful hidden pockets. After being on a backpacking trip for a few days I learned to appreciate the weight of this pack.
Used this bag for my first ever backpacking overnight (and plan to use it for many more). Had a ton of space to accommodate my overpacking with a good amount to spare as well. Loved how adjustable the fit is for it including an adjustable torso length to get the perfect fit and weight adjustment. Would highly recommend to someone looking for a solid first pack that's very versatile.
