I just used this bag on an overnight yurt trip in N. Utah and it worked perfectly. The trip in was a true test as I had Red Iguana Mole for 6 on top of all my other gear. The bag handled the load perfectly and I quickly fell in love with the ball joint hip belt setup. No matter how much I leaned or dipped, the pack was continuously centered and balanced. At the yurt, the pack reduced down great for doing laps and did not feel too bulky at all with a much-lighter "essentials-only" load. The only complaints I might have with this pack is the lack of shovel/probe sleeves and the hip belt and chest strap could have been done using slightly wider materials.
