Pretty damn nice, odd compression system

Used this pack a couple times so far. I got the regular and it fits me good. Just followed the sizing chart via Arc'teryx.com. Hiked with the pack and my skis for about 4 hours total. I am on the Volkl Kuros, which are 132mm underfoot. Pack has no problem fitting the size on the side for the A-frame carry. Have not tried the diagonal carry. Waist belt is pretty decent. Would prefer to be a little more beefy for extra support on the waist, but this pack is smaller to begin with resulting in the smaller waist belt. One thing I don't really like is the compression system. Wish it was just normal instead of the weird buckle wrap things. Tried to remove them but was left with too much slack in the straps leaving them too long. You will get use to them, just a little odd at first. Overall a good pack.
