I hate to admit it, but I'm what you call an "over-packer." In searching for the pack that would carry all my "toys" I decided on the Arc'teryx for its excellent suspension and incredible craftsmanship. From its anatomic back panel that houses 7075 aluminum suspension system that molds beautifully to your back after a few excursions to the incredible way it transfers the heaviest loads onto your hips and not on your back is, to say the least, miraculous!
During a trip in the B.C. coastal mountain I was hesitant on the climb up to Wedgemount Lake, known for its vertical grades, boulder fields, and numerous creeklets. But after navigating through these obstacles the pack carried all my gear with apolmb and not to mention saved my back and shoulder from lingering pain or discomfort. The suspension is truly incredible!
Before you decide on shelling out more money for a Dana Design or a Gregory backpack take a look at an Arc'teryx You'll appreciate the quality and save "mucho dinero" (especially if you buy it from Canada, eh!) Thanks Arc'teryx for an awesome pack!!
