I'm not sure where to start. All I can say is, it's the best pack I've ever owned. It just works. You know how some of the gadgets and things in your life "just work" and you can make little customizations to them that make them truly unique to you. It's like putting on your favorite pair of pants or shoes. This pack has everything I need when I need it. Nothing I don't when I don't need it.
If you're on the lookout for a pack that can literally handle any situation you want to throw at it (outside of maybe an expedition), look no further. Get this pack.

On a trip up to the north cascades recently it got down to 12deg at high camp that night. With two thermal layers on and toe warmers wedged between my liner and my wool sock I was toasty warm and slept like a rock. The rest of my rope team was not so lucky. Most of them ended up wearing every stitch of clothing they had to stay warm. At around 330am I added some glove liners and my buff over my nose, but would've been fine without as well.

As others have stated, the zipper does get stuck. You have to be pretty patient when you want to zip up, and take the time to put on your headlamp real quick and do it right otherwise you could shear the bag. I found this particularly inconvenient when I was groggy and half awake after a bio break and had to fully wake up to get the zipper closed up again. It was certainly an inconvenience but not worth dinging the bag a full star. I'll take warmth and a good nights sleep at 8k feet with a picky zipper versus struggling to stay warm wishing the sun would come up all night. Don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about.
