This pack is fairly light for its capacity. It appears Gregory has made most of the weight reductions in the material and pack body. The suspension system is quite heavy duty and suitable for heavy loads of up to maybe 55-60 lbs. The shoulder straps are the same as the Denali Pro model. The waist belt is from the Escape series packs. I found the pack to be comfortable and snug fitting. The two mesh pockets on the sides are handy for small/frequently used items, although I have had other packs with these in the past, and they are the first to rip or get worn away by abrasion. The included hydration system is lightweight and high in capacity (110 oz.) The spectra fabric is strong, but the thinness makes items in the pack sort of bulge out unless you load it very carefully. Not really a big deal, just makes the pack contents look lumpy. Overall, I'm happy with the pack, although I think the $340 retail price is a little high. The Gregory Gravity is only a little heavier, with similar capacity for less than $200 (although it has no included hydration system).
