A little awkward
Pros: full length zip allows easy access. very comfy and excellent fit thanks to the many adjustable options.
Cons: Will not stand up while loading it. Difficult to roll the top when full. Lid pocket too small. Too many straps!
I bought it because I loved the bigger Z pack and I wanted a smaller pack for shorter climbing outings. I should have chosen a simpler one. Maybe it is just me but I find this model a little over complicated for a climber.
