Summary

I love this pack. It's comfortable even when heavily loaded (hauling firewood FTW!) and has a great hip belt/suspension system. It's also stood up to a fair bit of abuse.

My only complaint: I wish the hip belt were removable.

Pros

  • Great hip belt and suspension
  • Comfortable
  • Stands up to abuse

Cons

  • Hip belt is not removable

Fit:

I have a long torso but generally small build; fits great.

Comfort/Ride:

Great hip belt and suspension. I can even haul firewood for cabin camping with this thing. Easy to get a well-balanced, comfortable ride — not fiddly at all.

Construction/Durability:

I've put this thing through the wringer, from hauling firewood (see above) to backpacking in nasty weather and using it as an improvised pulk belt to haul a sled loaded with coolers, which were in turn loaded with fish. Still does just fine and even looks pretty decent, too.

Capacity:

If you're careful and experienced, it carries enough gear for a four-night solo outing (including bear can) without having to be a hardcore ultralight type. Awesome overnight pack for newbies who need extra space.

Conditions: 

As described above... have used it to haul firewood, haul coolers full of fish, backpacking in nasty weather (hail, high winds, etc.) and even some backpacking in nice weather too.
