Great pack. Plenty of room for everything you need for a day. Hydration compatible and light weight. The pocket on the front of the pack is perfect for strapping a shell onto the outside of your pack for easy access. The pack is a little heavy for its size but makes up for it by being extremely comfortable. The ice axe straps are pretty light weight but have a double loop, the smaller one is perfect for hauling trekking poles. The sternum and waist straps make the pack stay put.
Only complaint is that I had to exchange for the large size as the waist belt on the medium only goes up to 34" If you are in that range I would recommend sizing up as the Large does go down below 34" and the torso length is not that long (I am 5'9" and it fits fine.)
One additional nicety that would be good on the next version is a small map pocket on the top of the pack that can be accessed without taking the pack off.
