I had been looking at the Shortbed for years and finally managed to grab one right before they stopped making them. I wish I'd gotten it sooner, as it is the most comfortable and practicle pack I have ever worn.
It is built very rugged, and the only drawback is that it is slightly heavy because of the heavy duty materials. However, the suspension is fantastic and more than makes up for the added weight to me. The suspension is very adjustable and the padding is great. It has been in a few off-trail situations, sometimes where I have been walking backward and using the pack to push through the brush and the packcloth has remained in perfect shape: no scratches or rips anywhere.
