This pack is built like a tank, It can handle anything you can tie to the loops. I took it on a three day trip on the at. There where three compression bags strapped to the back on the tie down loops. Lots of straps everywhere for adjustments it will compress the load tightly so it will have very little sway. Very easy on the back has a really good fit.
Keep in mind that I haven't yet used this pack. I'll update this review after I have; this is only an initial impression. I've mainly used The North Face packs for years, but I needed something larger. I am by no means a light backpacker (I'm a man, 40+ lbs doesn't bother me). This pack suits me perfectly. Most TNF packs this size are twice the price, as well as other brands. The quality feels superb, equal to TNF packs. The material feels strong and all zips are YKK. The padding on the back and straps is super plush and thick. I love the pockets and attachment points all over the pack. I give this pack an A++. Perfect for longer trips.
