Okay Bag with Major Design Flaws
Personally I did not like this bag at all. I have to admit that the hip belt and cables running through the pack did do a good job of displacing weight, but there are two major design flaws.
1) If the backpack is not filled all the way with whatever, the top cover keeps falling off. For example, I put my camera and glasses and things i need quickly in the top pocket, and instead of resting on the clothes that should fill the pack, it just falls off to the side or on my head. Very annoying.
2) The grey areas of the pack are like an elastic material allowing you to put rain jackets or something you might need quick in it, but after a few weeks the elasticity wears off and things keep falling off.
Alsoooo, the shoulder straps are just a bit too narrow for my liking, and do not allow enough pressure to be distributed along your shoulder blades.
