A REAL BUMMER!

I returned my Silo 30 the same day I received it. The waist-belt is a total hunk of junk. The shoulder straps are paper thin. Never again with Arc'teryx! Osprey forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally disagree with Mark. I have owned several Arc'teryx packs including this one. The Arc'teryx Silo 30 is redefining the boundaries of feasible, with load-carrying ability and freedom of movement and it is No way to comparison w/ Osprey or any other.

Arc'teryx Silo 30 is excellent pack for snowsport specific backpack with backcountry features, alpine , ski and snowboard wrap system, and NO problem to use day hiking for all year round.

Yeah, I'm going to disagree with mark. If you have a decently strong back, you want the thinnest waist and shoulder straps, especially when you are carrying only 30L. Tons of cushioning is for weak people. I've owned an Osprey Kestrel and it was total garbage compared to the Silo.
