Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Osprey's Anti-Gravity Suspension system is awesome and in my opinion, well worth the cost of their backpacks! After wearing a couple of different backpacks, from dirt cheap to name brands, Osprey is my now go-to backpack for most of my outdoor needs. The fit and comfort is perfect and the mesh backing keeps my back fairly cool while hiking. Other unisex backpacks I have used have always had issues with the hip belt, but not this pack!
There is plenty of space for all my gear and straps on the outside to attach additional gear, like trekking poles. Generally for a weekender, I carry about 25-30lbs of gear, and have not had any issues fitting all my stuff (including a large 2 person 4 season tent) into my pack. My only grip would be to add sleeping pad straps, for winter camping I like to have both a foam pad and inflatable pad for extra warmth.
I highly recommend this pack to all my friends who are looking to purchase one for the first time!
