I hated returning this. construction better than you would expect at that weight, and the compression system is genius. I was looking for something a bit bigger than my old osprey talon 44. This seemed perfect, except for the lack of an alternative access to the black hole of a main compartment, and no hip pocket. I didn't realize how much I'd miss those little items. couldn't be more than an extra hundred grams, and if they were there this would be 6 stars.
