Great bag, can carry lots of stuff and the overflow mesh pockets are great, although I would love to be able to carry water bottles in the two side pockets, but can't due to their shape.
The suspension system works well, the top pockets are bigger than they appear, but the pockets on the hipbelt are too small and hard to get to while the pack is on your back.
Very lightweight overnights with tarp and sleeping bag or bivy are handled well by the Raza.

I do not attribute the improvements to the brow lift I got in 2004; though I believe the brow lift was successful, it wasn t as big a hit in 2002 as my brand new Camelbak. My first Camelbak I initially bought my Raza by Camelbak for biking. Only cave men use water bottles right And then I thought it might be nice to take my Camelback skiing, and I m not kidding that after they saw me wearing my camelbak, every one of my friends got a Camelback Raza of their own. I don t necessarily think they are copycats, I just think they love their Camelbaks deep down in their hearts, and I am okay with that.Then summer rolled around and out went the nalgene bottle and in came the Camelbak for hiking. Eventually, I was wearing my Camelbak Raza climbing, running and just to walk the dog. I loved my Camelbak so much that, I started to wear it to take the garbage out and I even started to sleep with my Camelbak. You would think, that my girlfriend would be unhappy with me, but she got a Raza by Camelbak, too, so it s us and the Camelbaks in bed, and just imagine the pleasure of not having to miss a minute of Laguna Beach to get up and get a drink of water. Now I can t take my Camelbak off, and you can t make me. The only regret I have about the Camelbak Raza is that I didn t invent it myself. It s kind of like my mom who dipped oreo s in vanilla ice cream before cookies n cream came out.
