WOW this pack is light!!! I normally carry a REI Flash 18 for all day hikes, and I definitely push its capacity, and the lack of a real hip belt can really kill my shoulders after 12-15 miles.

With the Exos 34 i definitely have a little more room than i need, but this will surely fill up once winter comes. The hip belt isn't made for a 40-50lb load, but for the 25-30lbs that this pack is made for it is perfect. Of course the ventilated back is great, especially here in Arizona, you can really feel a nice cool breeze sneak between you and your pack, SWEET!

I am still a little worried about the durability of the buckles and cinch straps, so i always carry at least an extra hip buckle with me. So far though, no problems, it might just all be in my head.

yeah yeah i know... $34 for a water bottle, what was i thinking!

Well i dont regret it one bit, this thing is awesome. It isnt the lightest, but it is durable, and most importantly DOES NOT RETAIN THE TASTE OF THE LAST THING YOU HAD IN IT.

Coffee, rinse, water, rinse, OJ, rinse, milk, rinse....

You will NEVER taste the last thing that was in it.

And the blue color is really cool :)
