- Can't think of any.
Bought this pack March of 2012 after much research and thought and have been overwhelmed with the awesomeness of this top of the line pack.
This pack has it all; unlimited adjustments, a belt that swivels so the pack stays stable while you bend and twist and an instant adjustment feature for the shoulder straps.
This pack can easily accommodate a 5-day hike to anywhere since it holds 70 liters. The two compression wings double as side strap on's plus it has multible micro loops for further outside attachements.
As far as durabilty, it's an Arc'teryx, need I say more?
The attribute that puts this pack over the top is the full zipper suitcase opening that makes getting to anything instantaneous; just unzip and there it is! No more dumping everything out to find something at the bottom.
