Light, packable, handy
I just took this pack on a trip down the Yampa river so I had something to stuff an extra layer, water, and food into when I was exploring side canyons. It was actually a bit too big for that, but it rolled/stuffed/compressed down so well that I didn't mind the extra size when it was actually out.
The straps are nicely shaped, and supportive enough, though you'll definitely feel them after four or five hours of hiking. The sternum strap is a great addition for a pack like this, with no waist belt, and adjusting it allowed me to bring the shoulder straps in and out to help with the discomfort there. The roll top is convenient, and the exterior pocket is quite large, and useful. All in all, it held a lot more than I thought, and was more comfortable than I expected.
