I've only had this pack for a couple of months but I am really impressed with it. This is the smallest of the packs in the new Roll Top line from Arc'Teryx. Very well made overall. Nice suspension provided by a plastic framesheet along with a 6061 aluminum stay and a nice thermomolded backpad. Bombproof material throughout. Hypalon and armorlite used in hardware and front pocket. Heard that this is the material that Zodiac boats are made of, but who knows. Hydration pack compatible via a mesh bladder pocket inside the pack, port for hose and a hose clip on right shoulder strap. Almost overbuilt for a daypack. However, what really sets this bag apart is the unique Roll top feature. Kind of like a dry bag closure. Two flexible plastic bands are built into the main opening of the bag that enable you to roll the pack closed. Two straps on either side cinch the whole deal tight. Sounds kind of complicated but quicker than most top loaders to open and close. While not intended to be completely waterproof the system works well in most foul weather conditions. I'm fairly sure that other manufacturers will be paying close attention to this new innovation from the guys at Arcteryx. Check it out for yourself.
