- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just took this across pack on a 50 miler and it performed great. Just enough space and I love the side access.

How easy is it to access/insert the water reservoir? And how large of a water reservoir can it accomodate?
Flora, I have the model just a year or two older than this one, so I'm not certain whether the design changed at all, but my Crestone water reservoir was in a great location. Even when the pack was full, I could still manage to fit my reservoir in the sleeve that is designed there. It's easy to access, and it fits the medium sized camelback reservoirs.

Not the same pack, but the same fit system.
The North Face Crestone 60 Backpack
Hopefully I can save you some money. I first purchased the North Face Overhaul 40 Travel Pack, great pack, only issue is that it was too small for my situation. I needed to be able to carry a full set of work cloths (shirt, t-shirt, pants, socks, and shoes) and any additional work stuff (laptop, papers....). The North Face Overhaul 40 Travel Pack just didn't cut it. I could fit all in but if was smashed in there. I workout before work so that is why the cloths are needed.
The North Face Crestone 60 Backpack is working out great. The OptiFit System does make the pack fit perfectly to your back. The layout of this pack distributes the weight evenly. Only complaint is the sleeping bag pocket zipper. The zipper is a half shaped moon and it is difficult to easily open and close the zipper. Know how most zippers are in a straight line? There is a reason. All in all a great pack, looks good, I have the Black/Charcoal color and looks like I should be out day packing but I just use it to and from train, work and home.

I was wondering how the sizes work for these packs? I have a 20inch torso and a 32 inch waist and wondering what size should i get?
In the upper right hand corner of the site, right bu the pricing there is a little text called "Size?". Click on the Size? and it will display a pop-up and show you what is recommended for XS, S, M, L and XL for the Torso, Waist an d Chest. I think this chart is exactly what you need.
Nice durable pack
I have the previous version, but it doesn't seem to have too many changes to the overall design. It carries 50lbs. fairly comfortably. It could use another pocket or two on the outside, but that may be just a personal quirk. Perfect for 3 to 4 day trips, maybe longer if you pack ultra-light.
