Super light. Sweaty back.Used this pack for the first time on a hut trip last weekend. I thought the snowshoe in was going to kill me, but that's not the pack's fault. It holds a ton, including 10 pounds of breakfast burritos. The only things I found lacking, really, were outside accessible pockets and maybe longer cords to tie things onto the outside of the pack (i.e. the straps were not long enough to attach my snowshoes when I no longer needed them and I had to get creative). I'm going to buy the extra lid to supplement, and just get some extra paracord or something. Otherwise, the pack was really comfortable; I was the only one (out of the group of 6) who wasn't complaining about chafing from the straps or making their shoulder muscles hurt. I did get a suuuuuper sweaty back, though; not much ventilation back there.

seams like a quality productGG used narrower straps on hip and upper lower shoulder strap adjustments (lifters). GG used chords for side and rear compression. The lower side chords can be fed thru inside of pocket over exterior of pocket to more securely hold items. This is a top loaded with roll-top closure (buckles at sides). A stiffer around top hold the pack open for easier loading. Two straps over top, can be used to lash down extra gear. 5 stretch mesh pockets. Two small ones on shoulder straps, one at either side and one large down the center of pack.
