If you aren't me, BUY THIS PACK!!
You know, this backpack really pisses me off. I love it. I think it's made well. It is actually lightweight, with volume, and even has a separate compartment in the front. It has a pocket in the belt which really is something all backpacks should have. It appears durable with watertight zippers and a nice separate section for a sleeping bag. I want it to work so badly, but dammit (!!!!) at 6'5" the torso length is just too damn short, and honestly, my fat gut (260 pounds worth)makes the chest and belt strap barely hang on anyway. My point, if you are shorter then 6'5" and you aren't known for clearing out buffets on a regular basis..........BUY THIS PACK!!!
