  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just got this pack in the spring and have used it regularly. The pack is fairly lighweight and feels pretty good when filled completely. I use this for day hikes and also as a work field pack. I'm not a huge fan of how the lid opens from the opposite way (the back of the pack) than traditional packs with lids. Also, I find the waist belt isn't easily adjustable. You have to fidget with it, not like the usual waist straps where you can easily pull the webbing with one hand to tighten even as you are hiking or going along. Only one side is adjustable, the side with the male end of the buckle. You have to feed the strap through sections at a time through another webbing rigging piece before it fully adjusts. I like the big side mesh pockets for throwing things in on the whim, but the mesh is already tearing a bit from the top where it is sewn into the stretchy pocket. Little disappointed with this pack as I have a Gregory Deva 60 from 2003/2004 that is still solid with a lot of use. Luckily I won this pack at a raffle and will keep using it til it falls apart. Hopefully not too soon!
