Nice goggle, but... Without a helmet, huge bug-eyes. With my Giro Seam helmet, a clean look and decent face fit, but I have to fiddle with the strap each time to get the right position and the goggle slides over the top and off if I want to raise it up for whatever reason. Gonna have to return it.

Others have done a great job describing this nice pack. This comment is about sizing.

I'm 5'11", 165lbs, and usually wear a waist size of 33. Reading the measurement specs I figured I could either go with a large or medium Nitro. Turns out I was right, but for me the medium was a much better fit.

I originally ordered a large based on experience with other brands and the slightly larger capacity. The frame was on the long side for my back, but the real deal-killer was the large size of the waist belt. Had to cinch it and the shoulder straps way down. If I were mostly using the pack for winter I might have kept it, but that's not my plan.

I decided to swap the large pack out for a medium and am very happy I did. Thanks to Backcountry for the easy exchange.
