Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is the best pack you can buy whether you are just getting into backpacking or if you are looking to replace an older pack.
I was very, very reluctant to stop using my passed down Dana Design. I felt almost like a traitor for going away from the legendary brand... But all of those feelings disappeared five minutes into using this pack for the first time. All of what is said about making 45 lbs feel like 30 is true. I did not develop any hotspots on my back, sweat spots or overall discomfort after hours of use. I couldn't be happier with a single piece of gear.
The gear organization is top-notch. Trekking poles, ice axe, foam sleeping pad stored externally all stay tight and organized. The two outside storage zip-compartments fit emergency storm protection and mid layers with easy so you don't have fuss with the main storage compartment.
I recommended this pack to a friend who was just starting to get into backpacking and he feels the same exact way about the pack. Be smart, get this pack, it will be the biggest favor you can do yourself.
