James Hickswrote a review of Marmot Kompressor Verve 52 Backpack - 3175-3295cu in on August 11, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really like the combination of a top loading back and a huge zippered J panel. It offers great access, but also the benefits of a top loader(expansion, easier to stuff items into, top lid, etc.). Plus the the pack is nice and lightweight, but still sturdy and durable enough to trust it on a long backpack trip.
