approaching my senior of college, my old pack gave out. Since it doubled as a school pack i decided to get on i could use for school. i did however decide to to get an outdoor pack i could use in school for a year not a school pack i could struggle with for a whole lot longer than the year left of my school. it has blown my mind all around. the airspeed suspension system is comfortable and cool. i have taken it in on a few day hikes and road trips. it packs very well, the mesh pockets on the side seem to be tight on my water bottles and extra shoes when i got it but has loosened up after time so that it is perfect now. this pack has made me only want to buy osprey (yes i know there are many good packs out there and still shop around and look at everything first but im just making a point here)
buy it for real.
