Tons of room, plenty of comfort

I have a bad back, so when shopping for a multi-day pack I tried on plenty. I'm short, and skinny - using a Men's Small fitted by my local outdoor store suits me just perfect. My pack weight is about 18 pound for solo, closer to 26 if I'm with my wife. This pack holds the load well, and keeps my back from drowning in sweat. The pockets are plentiful and the bag feels very durable. I especially like the "stretchy" outer pocket, great for a pair of flip flops. The sleeping bag compartment makes it easy to cram my sleeping bag into the bottom of the pack in the morning.
