I travelled with this on my back for just under three years, lived out of it every day.
I spent 6 weeks in Nepal at altitude with 16kg and was comfortable, many weeks in Borneo in the jungle in torrential rain and nothing got wet.
The removable top pocket was convenient to store valuables and remove while travelling on buses in developing countries with the main pack on the roof.
The side pockets are convenient to have water bottles and trekking necessaries readily available.
The distribution of weight in your waist is perfect, I can't fault it.
I have had multiple other packs through my life all had minor issues to deal with or they finally broke, not a stitch is out of place on mine now but if it ever does break I will buy another.
It is now 8 years old, I can't think of how to put it through more punishment. Australian outback, Borneo jungle, Himalayas, Mongolian steppe and many more destinations it has coped without issue.
I love this pack, I can't say enough good things about it.
