Great pack! Lot's of space for my 7 day trip. Carried roughly 40lbs (packed weight) comfortably on the AT throught the Great Smoky Mountains NP. Now, I will add that I did swap out the shoulder harness from my Osprey Argon 85 because the shoulder straps padding seemed much thicker on my Argon but did use the Isoform hip belt that the Aether came with rather than also swapping the bioform hipbelt from my Argon. However, whether I had the option of swapping shoulder harnesses or not, I am supremely confident that this pack would still have carried the weight well, and with maximum comfort. The pack seriously has a lot of space and lot's of places to hang stuff. The fabric is very durable and feel that it will last for a long time. The true test will be 2012 as I will be using this pack on my AT through hike. I am 5'10", 165 lbs and have a medium.
