looks durable

    well this is the first BIG backpack I own and have some smaller ones 50L Osprey and 25L Salewa, had to buy something bigger for my Patagonia trip.... first thing i notice when I got this is that all the materials used in this pack look super durable and strong compared to my lightweight small packs .

    Only used it 1 time for 5 days and it was pretty nice
    I could fit all my gear and some of my friends jackets with lots of extra room (like half the pack haha yes its HUGE but you can compress it)... First time a sleeping bag compartment is actually meant for a 0* down bag and pillow to fit.

    waist belt is soso by the end of the trip my hips where hurting

    On the negative side... I think it has lots of straps and strings, no rainfly,the meshpockets on bottom can only fit your keys or maybe a granola bar they'r super small

    2 questions, actually: first, is the torso...

    2 questions, actually: first, is the torso adjustable? secondly, is there an included rainfly?
