Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
its like they though of everything with this pack! i bought the raven 10 for use on longer adventures, but it's so comfortable that i've taken to using it for just about every ride, even if i'm only going out for a quick, after work jaunt. it really seems to just disappear on my back and stays in place, even when loaded down or on technical stuff. plenty of room for water, tools, snacks, a jacket, and i really dig the organizational features including a place to keep your pump. the hip belt is very comfortable and the hip pockets are perfect for keeping a gel or blocks handy. the back is adequately ventilated so sweaty back isn't too bad and the hose magnet is brilliant. i also really appreciate that the reservoir has a rigid back which keeps it sitting flat on your back rather than turning into a barrel.
finally, i'm so happy that companies are making mtb packs designed for women. i'm petite so unisex packs usually don't fit very well. but the raven fits awesome and is a testament to the advantage of women's specific designs. my boyfriend has the raptor 10 and having tried on his s/m the raven definitely fits better.
