Most Comfortable Pack I have ever owned
I love this pack. It is a little heavy in some people's opinion, but the comfort is worth an extra pound to me. I like the panel load system and can find all my gear anytime. The lower compression straps being over the side pockets is a good idea, keeping contents locked in if I use them for that.
I would like to see an optional top pocket as you can get for some of Granite Gears other similar packs. I sometimes could use the extra room when on over 6 or 7 day hikes. Wonderful pack!
