I'll write a brief review because Mountain Hardwear deserves it for making a great product.
I'm a really big guy at 6'7", and very broad at the shoulders. I ordered the Banshee because it was one of the few quality bags built for folks my size.
I was thrilled when I received the bag because it was as advertised. Durable materials, quality construction, light-weight, and packed small. I climbed in to test it out and became very disappointed...I didn't fit! The length was great but I was too restricted in the shoulder and torso area.
This is no fault of the bag...it had adequate dimensions, just not for me. Long story short, I ended up returning the bag, and was very disappointed because the bag was perfect except that I'm too danged big!
If you're an unusually large or broad person you would definitely want to check it out first, but if you're of a "normal" size this would be a fantastic bag. Mountain Hardwear made a great product with the Banshee. I just wish that I could have kept it.
