Nice small pack for small loads
I like the size of this pack and find it works well for fast packing and some short overnighters. Does not hold an incredible amount of gear/ clothing, but the size says it all. The shoulder straps are pretty comfortable for the moderate load in this pack. In the past I have had some problems with Osprey's chest straps breaking, and spoke with reps about this in the past and it was a common fault in a lot of the other lines and earlier versions. This pack does not seem to have any of the faults I would see in the past. the back of the pack is nice and flexible which I like ( I am not a big fan of the internal butterfly springs that are becoming very popular with Deuter and even some of the Osprey packs, I also thinks that cuts into your total volume). I Like the feel of this pack to my back, it really does conform and ride nicely. I do wish this pack had a larger diameter waist belt, I just like the feel of a big belt and with heavier loads distributes the weight better through the lower back and legs. Other than that this is a pretty decent pack. I have used it for day climbing trips and for fast packing on short 2 day trips. I am 5'10" 165 lbs and I bought the medium/large which fit me pretty well.
