I love this pack. Fits perfectly and easy to adjust. Gear is easily accessible w/ the sleeping bag compartment on the bottom. Great water bottle pockets on the sides. Very comfortable.

I am so glad I have finally found a pack that is light and will carry enough gear! I am an avid lightweight fan but my load doesn't quite pack down to the Jam line of packs... this was perfect. It feels comfortable and the green color is great. My torso is 17.5 and I got a Medium, it fits great... the straps seem secure unlike on the cheapy pack I've hiked the PCT two summers with. This one is about 1/3 the weight while still big enough. I love how it compresses down.
One thing to consider though is hip size... I think I'm about average or on the narrow side (33 inches circumference) and the padding just barely covers the bony part, if I had a bit wider hips I think the hip belt would rub on the sticky out part of my hip bones... which fortunately it doesn't , but the padding doesn't go around as far as on any other packs I've seen.
Overall a good solution for fast paced hikers that need a lightweight highly compressible big journey backpack ! I 'm taking it into the Andes next, we'll see how it holds up!

The Odyssey is the largest of three full-suspension backpacking, trekking, and mountaineering packs in GoLite’s Venture Series. The Venture packs (Pursuit, Quest, and Odyssey) feature internal frame sheets that can accommodate 40-, 50-, and 60-pound loads and all are 3-liter hydration-compatible.
The Odyssey is GoLite’s lightest full-on load monster and is designed for all-season backpacking, mountaineering, and alpinism. It features two side hydration openings and an internal hydration sleeve; a sleeping bag compartment with removable interior shelf; a front pocket to hold a shovel, shovel handle, skins, or probe; a removable lid with welded watertight zipper for the top pocket; two angled side mesh pockets; the ability to carry skis, snowboards, or snowshoes using side compression straps; a frame sheet with two adjustable aluminum stays; a shaped back panel and hip wings with padding to contour the back and hips; and a contoured, compression molded hip wings that cushion and cup the hips.
The Odyssey uses GoLite’s ComPacktor system, which lets you reduce the pack’s volume through two fixed compression anchor clips that convert a multi-day pack into a day-tripper.
Here's what other sites are saying:

The GoLite Odyssey carries the heavy stuff as well as other packs, but weighs half as much.
The GoLite Odyssey full-frame backpack is lightweight, durable, and versatile. Its no wonder this pack is a favorite of the NOLS instructors. This pack is large enough to carry all the big and heavy items, and does so with just as much comfort as bags weighing twice as much. The new Odyssey is a monster, and some may even go so far as to call it their personal Sherpa.Features: Size-specific hip-belt with zippered pockets for quick access Mesh on the back panel and shoulder harness allow for quick drying S-shaped back panels mimics the shape of the spine and are customizable Large lid for easy access detaches to reduce pack weight by 92 grams Two side pockets hold 1L bottles and trekking poles Side compression straps can convert to front attachment system for sleeping pads, snowboards, etc. Twin ice axe loops and handle straps Internal hydration sleeve for your bladder Specs:Volume: 4758 cu. in.Weight: 3 lbs. 2 oz.
