This is the most comfortable pack I have ever owned. It is well designed and is absolutely bombproof. Even though it is terribly expensive, it is worth every penny.
I only have a few minor complaints. First, the Astralplane is way too big. Unless you are going climbing in Alaska and really need the capacity, seriously consider getting the Terraplane (same frame, smaller capacity). Because this pack is so large I always cinch down the side compression straps as far as they will go before even loading it.
Second, (very minor complaint) the daisy chain in between the two large outer pockets is very hard to access when the pockets are stuffed full.
