Best I've seen. Versatile and comfortable. It's intellengly arranged for balanced carrying . Fill the hydration system with ice and water keeps you cool in extremely hot weather Intellengently designed for easy recover of extra bottles,snacks, and other necessities .Whish I'd had for grand canyon trip. Have traveled on plane without any trouble. Highly recommend . I did buy Rain cover for it and love it more.
I found this on clearance . It felt great and I was able to cram a ton of things into it in the store and walk around. The was balanced perfectly. The frame worked wonderfully. I am 5'3" and 125 lbs. It worked great. Loved thr mesh pockets in the belt. Perfect for putting u need during hike. Lip chap,pills and other things. I hooked bottle to straps and used mess pockets for snacks and small items I wanted within east reach. By filling thr hydration system with ice and water my back was very comfortable and I had cold h2o all day. Pack road great and put no weigh on shoulders or lower back. I used it for 12 mile hike in smokes in summer. Loved the detachable floatable top.it was perfect for money and valuables. I just wish I had had it when hiking the Grand Canyon. I have it now and have taken it on airplanes even with sterick guidelines.
