This pack is incredible. I took it to Philmont, NM, in late June/early July and it performed like a champ. Prior to buying this pack, I had carried a Jansport D-4 (external) on a couple of training hikes, with no more than 35-40 pounds each time. I wound up with bruised and swollen hips. I bought the Palisade just before I left and broke it in on the trail. It carried wonderfully and handled my humongous load better than my old external could carry 35 lbs. Not to mention, I came off the trail on day 11 without having sustained a single bruised hip or having experienced any swelling. This pack is worth more than its weight in gold.
