Solid Backpack, got a small tear in it thoughBeen Using this bag for a a few months and have log lots of miles on it and overall Im very happy with it. I've used to for adventure races as well as a cragging pack for the long approaches and have carried up to 45 pounds in it fairly comfortably. Im 5'6 and the medium fits me very well.,,I really like the roll up top, keeps the water out well. I don't think its completely waterproof but i've been in some petty wet conditions and heavy rains and it didn't soak through.,,My only complaint is that I somehow got a small tear on its side about the size of a dime. Im not sure how it got there, the materiel seems pretty tough but i did walk through some pretty thick and sharp brush.

it does the jobI've had this pack for one climbing season now. I like it good enough that I'm not in the market for another, but there are some improvements I'd like to see. It's pretty comfy to wear, even with a decent amount of weight in it. I love the stretchy outside pockets because you can actually put more stuff in them! I'm not strongly against the roll top but I am not crazy for it, either. Two things I think could be better are the water resistance (doesn't have much) and the hydration bladder storage (I'd prefer a sleeve so it could go in and out without the need to unpack and repack everything in the bag).

Definitely worth buyingI bought this pack for just week trips or shorter and I have no complaints at all. I use it for clothes mainly and not gear like some others but I can fit a weeks worth of clothes and my sleeping bag in the pack and still have room for more. Plus all the pockets are good for fitting things such as toothbrush and other hygiene items.
