So far, so good
Though I haven't tested it on a long trip, it has been on a couple multi-day trips and performs well. It holds a lot and stays comfortable on both shoulders and waist. It is minimalist on the zippers but that is ok (I might wish for another one on the top, overflap, but that's minor). The padding is substantial, and while not super light, it's cuts close to 2 pounds off my old North Face pack of the same capacity. At this stage, no complaints.
