Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This pack has been through a lot with me! Heres some feedback. Obviously lightweight, thin fabric. Stretchy side pockets, very stuffable, (is that a word?). Durable fabric- I have literally shoved so many things in here without thinking about it and it has not torn once. Although a little critter did bite a hole in the front pouch when I was camping! But thats what I get for having granola accessible ;) The back support is limited, yet comfortable. It may just be me, but I cant comfortably hike more than 7 miles or so (depending on the load) without my shoulders hurting. The straps aren't greatly padded. Yet I have gone much further than that and I survived! The bottom of pack has loops to tuck the bottom of the pack under, making the pack smaller for shorter hikes. Helpful yet I have never used that feature.
The picture attached is about 35-40lbs of gear and there was still more room in the top! Overall awesome pack, just needs more support.
