This bag is wonderful - I recently used it for a winter day hike of Mt. Washington; it is amazingly light (lighter than my CamelBak mule, even with the same reservoir, but 3 times the size) and can hold an impressive amount of stuff. I did not use even a 1/3rd of the capacity with my softshell, heavy-duty mitts, thermos, food, water, poles, hat, gaiters, and crampons. Has convenient small mesh pockets in the waist belt and loops on the shoulder straps that work well for water tube and compass/altimeter. The one thing I would add to improve this bag is a small, watertight bag on the inside (hanging from a clip on the top perhaps?) to hold electronics, keys, etc. - there are no pockets at all on the inside, save a sleeve for a hydration bladder. Other than that, I'm very pleased with the product and its performance.
