OK... As long as you aren't a gear snob, this is a pretty good pack. It's cheap and built to last. It is made entirely of heavy-duty ripstop nylon, so it is tough without the weight of the heavier corduras out there. Straps and hip-belt are lined with wicking mesh (comfy) and it has a ladder adjustment for the shoulder straps (big range of fit). It has passable compression straps (nothing fancy) and has mesh water-bottle holders on the bottom of each side which you'll learn to love, and a big-ol' lid pocket with a smaller pocket under the lid. A big U-shaped zipper allows access to the whole pack without undoing anything, and it has a daisy chain down the back. Double drawcord closure at the top, and a one-piece u-shaped perimeter frame insde.
The only thing I don't really like is the frame. It's difficult to bend it to fit, because the flattened-oval shaped aluminum just kinks... no nice curves. And it goes across the top of the pack, which makes riding a motorcycle with it kind-of a pain in the... er, neck.
But it's dirt-cheap, durable and easy to use. It's easy enough to find a different frame and just pop it in.
