Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had my XL Zenith 88 (actually 98L) for over a year, with snow camp trips in Denali, Yellowstone, Glacier, Crater Lake, love it. Replaced a similar size but heavier, stiffer Gregory, no comparison. Zenith fits like a glove, did not opt for in-store heat molding, wanted the pack to mold to my body under prolonged loaded, hiking conditions. Adjusted multiple times during break-in, amazing fit and feel. Winter gear for say 4-day trip rings in at 75lbs, pack rides great under this load.

Removable fanny pack is a no-go, from base camp I unload the pack for day trips, add camp pad, stoves, food, reservoir, random gear, clothing, tighten all draw strings and straps, it rides great with minimal load as well.

Look for sale, do not hesitate to buy this pack.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not much into to writing these, but do read them, ha. Not a hi-altitude climber but do play in the back country. Liked the idea of warm-no-matter-what, and comfortable sleep all around, willing to pack an extra lb of down. cwm delivers. Have spent a few nights on snow on neo-air pad under the stars, or falling snow a few times, had to vent the bag, no prob doing so. 3 day bkcountry snow camp in glacier last month, stellar. Had girlfriend along, left and right zipper cwm's, w bags zipped together to canoodle, exceptional comfort, again had to vent, no prob. both bags are longs, so gear went in her foot space, nice to have. made great sit-up eskimo wrap playing card game on snowy night as well. Inhales, lofts to advert 8-10" well, tho a little less so after a few dozen uses, expected. stuffs well in sack. color, workmanship is superior. will bcountry hike with these, kayak camp, snow camp, and have an excuse so may head to denali next month.

add that zipper wants to snag so slow and steady. nice if it had cell ph pocket.

closing comment, 20% off here is a steal in this bag category. Happy trails.
