I used this backpack for eight years. Has a nice cubic inch capacity and the suspension is comfortable. I think the sleeping bag compartment is too small and I always had to fight to get even a summer bag into it. The sleeping bag compartment zipper was linear instead of half moon shape and seemed to be worthless. Easiest to load the bag from the top of the pack. The water bottle side pockets are so small and narrow I could never use them. If I wanted water, I would have to stop, and open up the hood pocket to get my water bottles. I finally got tired of doing this.
I would not recomend this pack. If you are serious about backpacking, buy something a little higher in price, it will be worth it. I bought a Jansport, and have never looked back.
