Great lightweight packThis is an uncluttered, straightforward design with a traditional internal frame suspension. Instead of spending weight on silly features (two-compartment lids, separate sleeping bag storage and access, loops, or other gimmicks), it puts the weight into the suspension. The hipbelt and shoulder straps are well padded; the hipbelt stays put (I don't think I ever had to hitch it back up during the day.) What really makes the final bit of difference is that you can move the point where the load lifter attaches to the shoulder strap, to really fine tune things.,,All in all, this pack carries more comfortably than most in its weight class.

Amazing packI am minimalist by nature but still like to have a comfortable backpack. I don't really care for all the bells and whistles of most of the packs that make the packs weight over 3 kg. I wanted light, comfortable pack with plenty of room for multiday trips. This back does it all. It is one of the lightest packs with full suspension. You can go lighter but the comfort will suffer. I used this pack for a month now including two multiday trips and the suspension is just amazing. I don't feel any sore spots at all.
It is a simple pack, one compartment with a lot of capacity. The two side packets are large enough to hold 2L water bottle and the outside packet is large enough to hold my rain jacket. The extension sleeve at the top of the pack is great, with great loads extend it, as you eat your food, make the pack smaller. Not sure about durability as I had it for short time only. Moosejaw was great, shipping was fast and the selection of gear is great. I agree with everything Glenn commented on in his review.
