Nearly great pack, with a few design quirks. But really hits the empty space between packs that are too light and too heavy.
- Strong where needed
- Great size for careful packers
- Very comfortable
- Versatile, for many different load volumes.
- Far too many small straps
- Hip belt is too light compared to the overall capacity of the pack
- Apparently discontinued
It took me forever to find a pack the could carry a good 35 pound load comfortably while keeping the pack weight reasonable.
Granite Gear seems to have a great feel for this balance.
I wish there were fewer straps, but they seemed to have thrown every strap they could think of here.
But, for a versatile, strong, and comfortable pack this is VERY hard to beat. Love it and will manage to not whine about the straps.
