Very comfortable and light, first impression, seems…

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Design: Rucksack
Size: almost 4000 Cu In I think
Number of Pockets: 8 or so of varying sizes
Max. Load Carried: 30#
Height of Owner: 5'11"
Price Paid: $110

Very comfortable and light, first impression, seems flimsey but after using on a 2-day/night hike to 10,000 ft. proved rugged and reliable. Although it's called a "race pack I'll only use it for regular old backpacking. 3 liter hyd. system included. The inside stayed dry after an hour long T-storm.

I'm impressed, I'll recommend it to my friends.
