I love this pack!!! I have over 70 miles on it carrying 20-25lbs and I just can't say enough about it. The suspension is comfortable and close. It rides quiet and comfy and the open compartment construction makes it versatile for all types of gear. I've been through normal rain without trouble. I've been abusing it horribly on snags and sharp rocks but it bears no hard feelings. I cannot find signs of wear at all. I irresponsibly threw it off a 20ft wall with 15lbs of gear in it. The molded back sheet and stays took no dammage!! The only thing I might have done differently if I was designing the bag would be to make at least one of the waist belt compartments waterproof for electronics. Prepurchase, I was a bit conserned about the fact that I'm a bit blocky in my build hence I didn't get the women's pack. The suspension works for me just great. If you want a comfortable, durable, lightweight pack without the gimmicks that other packs put in your way then this is the one! Oh yeah... and people keep asking if they can try it on along the trail. Lots of positive feedback.

I'm convinced!! I love carrying and sleeping in my hammock. Way better than a sleeping pad on the hard ground. If you are in cold weather you don't need the bug net so just flip over your hammock and use a lightweight stuffable insulative pad under you inside the bug net. You won't crush the loft and you can reach under and slide it into the most advantageous position from inside the hammock. Just can't express how happy I am with hammock backpacking!! I also prefer this design to the multiple strings design as there's nothing to get tangled.

Chose this bag for it's lightweight and low cost properties. It has good functionality for a bag at this price point. I am 5'1" and on the blocky side. I don't feel crowded and I don't loose loft to tight quarters. I appreciate the foot vents alot because even at home in my bed I like to hang my feet out. When it's cold and I pull my feet in the footbox does fine keeping the tootsies warm. When I first got it I was disappointed with the loft of the ground side of the bag. The picture looks like alot more loft but it performs well in the outdoors where it counts. Happy Hiking =0)
