I bought my Catskill a few years ago when I was going to be backpacking around Europe. At the time all I knew was that I wanted the maximum capacity I could find... now that I have put a few miles under it and gained much more experience with backpacking I know what I need in a pack. I didn't have any problems with my Catskill at all. It does seem a little heavy but other than that it was top notch (and still is).
The only negative thing to ever happen to it is the front strap attachments (on the sleeping bag compartment) ripped during one trip... of course I did have my tent strapped there so the weight was probably just too much, and not a manufactures defect.
After many loyal years it has become time to retire my Catskills pack, not because it has lost its quality but because my needs have changed. I will definetly NOT be giving it away and it will always be my trusty back-up!
