This pack has acceded my expectations. The adjust-ability is amazing, there is a strap located in all the right spots so that you can get this thing locked into a comfort zone. As the other reviews mention, the hip belt and inner swing arm system put this pack well ahead of the others. The material has been very strong so far and I have really enjoyed how light weight it is. Compression pocket on the front is great for throwing in a rain layer or some sandals for quick access.
