I was helping my son-in-law buy his first backpack and ended up buying the Savant 48 for myself. It is lighter than the one I had been using and it has some very nice features. I love the waterproof pocket on the top and the second pocket underneath it. After completing three weeks on a very rainy hike I can testify that it it truly is waterproof! I also like the fact that it comes with its own custom fit rain cover and that it provides easy access not only to the cover but also to my raincoat. That came in handy many times. I did not use the "secret" pocket for valuables but it is a nice place to have easy access to my water filter. All in all, I am very pleased with this pack.
It's comfort, durability and well thought out features make this pack stand out. The panel loading feature is just superb. Extremely sturdy and I have had no concerns about it failing on me. Quite light for it's feature set and the comfort level it provides. I currently live in the UK and it rains A LOT here. I can attest to the waterproof top pocket's functionality. The hydration sleeve can be reached without opening the main compartment and yet it still covered by the top flap. Again perfect for rainy and snowy climes.Overall a great pack for backcountry adventures, and also for extended travel use.
