Mediocre pack at best, not at all what I expected from Arc'teryx

I brought this pack with me to the BWCA/Quetico wilderness areas of Minnesota and Canada for a week as a support/day pack. Right out of the box I was hesitant because the material felt so light and thin. With the pack being so narrow, it didn't really carry all that well on my frame and the buckles felt very cheap. The side pockets were much smaller than I thought and were made of very cheap mesh. Pack held up alright to abrasion but this one got returned right after I was home. I have since replaced it with a pack that without a doubt is the one for me. If you're on the fence with this pack, check out the Lowe Alpine Airzone Centro series. I got the 45+10 version and was blown away with build quality and thought that went into that pack....plus you're not paying Arc'teryx prices either.

This is a very well priced pack. Arc'teryx usually prices their stuff much higher. I don't see where the complaint about the price is coming from. It looks like you didn't even give it a chance. Review Fail.

hub, do you still have it? I'll buy it from you if you do.
