The lightest, most comfortable pack I've found. Very large, padded hip belt and mesh back. Use for up to 35 lbs. I've taken this pack on week-long backpacking trips in Colorado and Alaska with no problems. If you are an ultra-lite backpacker then this is the pack to use.
I roll up my Therm-A-Rest pad around the inside of the pack for support which works great. I even slip a drinking blader inside the folds of the pad.
