Just wondered what happened to the North Face....?
I've been waiting for an update on the pivotal frame used in their Catalyst Series.

The North Face has been pretty quiet on the pack development front. As far as I know, they did not update the Catalyst packs this year. The Pivotal Suspension has gotten generally good reviews, although one user had problems with the pivot cracking:
