I have used this pack on winter day trips and one summer overnight. Overall, it's a decent pack that appears very durable (I bought it used and have used it myself and it shows no signs of wear); however, I have always found it hard to get things in and out despite the fact that it is a panel loader. I think the main reason for this is the top hydration pocket--when it's filled (in my case with snacks etc. as I don't use a hydration bladder) it sticks out and gets in the way of getting things in and out of the large main compartment especially when tightly packed (as can happen with winter clothing). This is the major reason for my relatively low rating of this pack.

I can't say too much about how comfortably it carries when it fits properly, as I bought this pack before I really knew enough to pay attention to torso length etc. and as a result it is too long for my 16-inch torso and isn't very comfortable for me but would probably be fine for someone taller. I have since gotten a women's Kelty Redwing which fits me much more comfortably and seems to be much easier to load and unload.
