Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

First of all, the frame is made of all aluminum(Legs/connecting cross-members.) which don't make it look or feel very durable.. "As to where the other that I have (Same design)is made of light steel (legs/cross-connecting bars etc.) which make the frame alot more durable". The only plus is the height adjustments to the table. Not very sand friendly,will need to purchase rubber boots so that the table won't sink into the sand when being used, just wish the frame was made of a more durable metal(Light steel) Watch out for the screws on the underside of the table top they seem to strip out easily..Alot easier and faster to set-up then other models that I have checked out..Great service from Backcountry.com again.. Thank you all....

Not liking having to open the shut off valve to fold the handle down when done using stove and ready to fold up and return the unit to it's container. Stability is also questionable, probably wise to use wide low profile pots to cook and boil water in. 6" or wider....

Has enough light for trail walking and dims down easily to save on battery power. The red lens cover flips up and down easily too to help with the night vision, you don't have to continually push a button trying to find the red night vision light. Weighs very little.... The Red Lens Cover(flipping up and down)takes alittle getting use to..

Outstanding! Like the idea of being able to remove the tube before placing the reservoir in the refrigerator. The insulator pouch was well thought out, being able to carry it by the handle/hang inside pack or the "D" ring attachments and also being able to see inside the reservoir. This will be my new Platypus Insulator hydration system's first field excursion....

Like the extra pocket on the front of my NEW Quasar Pack, don't miss the mesh which was on my Ouantum, I don't miss the 1/2"in the main compartment that I gave up,still packing all that I need with room to spare in my NEW Quasar. Both are great backpacks. Wish Osprey would get rid of the elastic bands on the right shoulder harness strap (they stretch out shape)and go with what they have on the left shoulder harness(Nylon Cloth)on both sides..

Having tested them in the sand. They have to be buried deep and pack down good to the top of the webbing and even then it depends on how large your tent is, for them to hold and how strong the wind is blowing. I'm trying them on a Kelty Sunshade 10'X 10'.. They are made very well, but just wish the pockets were alittle larger/wider. I'll keep them for my smaller tent and hopefully they'll work on both tent and Kelty Sunshade dome....

The Exos34(M) is a well made(Little)backpack, afew more straps then I wanted but they can be tucked away. Very comfortable to wear, seem to lighten the load that I had put in it. Returning it for The 46(M). The 34(M) was just alittle to small for what I needed it for. The Jungle Green, very low profile. Very nice little backpack.

I've put a 3L Osprey Bladder in the sleeve and it worked just fine. The Osprey Bladder has it's own support system not needing to hang...You'll probably/maybe need to change out the mouth piece on the tube to make routing easier then again maybe not. I've also used a 32oz Nalgene bottle in the side pocket, it all depends how you pack your Quantum. Less on the inside,more on the outside, more on the inside, less on the outside....
