I ordered the odyssey because it was the highest capacity pack with the lowest weight. I recently took it out on a weekend backpacking trip to the Colorado Rockies. I took my entire family which requires me to be the family Sherpa, so I loaded it with 50 lbs of gear. I loved the volume of the pack, the high quality workmanship, and the new fabric. It weathered some light rain showers without a problem, and was great for carrying the heavier load. I'd recommend this pack.
