It's great. You're mainly buying this for the built in neck cushioning (& also the built in eye shade). Everything else is extra.

The plain black is much nicer than the previous designs. Still wish they made a lightweight fleece version (it says fleece but is not really).

A bit heavy for my liking. the older models had a few more pockets & i believe the built in eye shade used to cut out more light. The new mesh lining is nice.

It's a great hoodie for what it's designed for.

Pretty happy with this stove. Just want to say that there is a little bit of flame control even though the description says none. Not much, but there is a little.

Also, it's loud but not as loud as i feared. From memory, i do not think it is as loud as the msr dragonfly or primus omnifuel even though the designs are similar.

Mine didn't come with a manual which was annoying since i took it directly on a trip. But, i managed to figure it out..so that may speak a little about its ease of use.

It's quite solid, nothing flimsy about the design. The pump seems solid as well.

I've read some mixed reviews on brunton's dependability/durability on their other models...not sure how it will be down the road, but it works great now.

Surprised to find it's too thin, with not enough down for real warmth. Really surprising since burton makes good quality stuff & they specialize in winter sports.

The jacket is really well made with attention to detail though..just not nearly enough down for proper winter warmth. Maybe sufficient for mild winter conditions.

You're paying for the neck pillow & built in hood eye/face shade..& they work well. Plus, you don't have to look like a dork wearing a neck pillow & elastic band eyeshade.

It's not as plush/soft as i imagined..& a little heavier than i'd like. It's not quite as ugly in real life..the pattern is a dull grey.

It works..definitely saves the neck..a little pricey. Wish they'd come out with a fleece version in plain black.

Great design, high end materials used..seems very durable. Is it worth the retail price? Probably..but 95% of the world seems to survive ok with luggage 1/3 of the price.

Do you really need a rolley bag with backpack straps? If you think you're going to switch from rolley to pack as you go up & down subway stairs..think again. It takes time to set up the straps & you wouldn't pull the bag with the straps out because they'll drag. You will end up just carrying it up & down stairs like a regular bag because of that. It did come in handy when jumping on a bicycle & throwing it on my back though.

I was denied bringing the pack as a carry on- even after taking the backpack off & trying to carry both. This totally defeated the purpose of having this luggage.

Also, osprey opted to go with no waist strap on the daypack. While it is a comfortable pack..after carrying water/snacks/maps etc for 3 people for a few days..i opted to use the rolley luggage as "the" daypack instead. Which sort of defeated the purpose of having a detachable daypack. (but the added 20L of space is nice over the sojourn version). Also, i'm sure there's some good reasoning into how the daypack compartment was designed..but like the other reviewer, stuff was often spilling out all the time when trying to access stuff.

If it was half the price, i'd be more forgiving..It's an overall good luggage but i have mixed feelings because it didn't meet many of my needs. Hope you can decide better with this review.
