Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm not a fan of the rotating hip belt for climbing. It seemed like a great idea, but as soon I as load heavy items up high (rope, water, climbing equip) the balance of the back gets way off. Every time I step the whole thing tips to the side and rubs my shoulders raw. Would be fine if you could load heavy things down low, perhaps for backpacking when you have more control over where items go in the pack. But when climbing, I put my light stuff down low (sleeping bag, extra clothes) and have too many heavy things up high to be able to keep my balance. What a shame, since otherwise it is a well-made, well-designed pack.
