Kind of a boat anchor

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Pretty surprised at the weight. Maybe all discs are like that. Feels like my singlespeed mtb. I feel like I can put it on a diet and fix some of that, but the really disappointing thing though is the brakes. If you want to stop, and not stop quickly, you had better be in the drops, squeezing for dear life. Don't even think about stopping from the hoods. Maybe there is a break-in, not really finding any documentation. Rides great, looks better, if I can get the brakes to work as good as a bad canti.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I wanted a shoe for cyclocross, MTB, and charity rides; this has been great. Performs well, and fit well from the git-go. Will buy again when needed.

Amazing pack, and all of the straps are excessively long and can be trimmed to normal lenghts for more weight saving. I really wanted this to work. Loaded it up with 25#, and it's like the hip belt would rotate down in the back, and I would end up with more weight than I wanted on my shoulders. The vented backpanel was great in the desert at Guadelupe Mountains NP, but I kept tightening the hip belt to try to get it to work, and it felt like the 1/2" strap would cut me in half. Maybe it's just my build, a buddy tells me it works great for him.
