Absolutely indestructible construction. Superb adjustable suspension, pivoting amply padded and contoured hipbelt (incredible ride). Floating detachable top pocket coverts to fanny pack for side trips. Vertical zippered main compartment access, zippered Kangaroo vertical front pocket w/drain hole perfect for wet things or hydration bag (ever have a water bag leak inside your bag?). Separate divided sleeping bag compartment w/zip access. Wand pockets on each side for poles, snow anchors, water bottles or whatever. This pack compresses to whatever size you need for rock solid control, and moves w/you like a second skin.
I use it for anything from a 2 day to 6 day trip (avg 3 days). Every single time I use it, I appreciate some design feature of it. It is a joy to wear. The minuses might be it's upper end weight (6lb 2 oz) and price, but it's worth every penny. I average 250 miles a summer in Glacier Park and wouldn't trade it for anything. Four years and 1000 miles later, I've yet to have a problem.
