As a guide for several years, I've used many packs, thrashed many packs. This is the greatest pack, bar none. It's held up to 2 years straight of guiding in the Utah / Colorado / Idaho area, from desert canyoneering to mountaineering and everything in between.

It's built like a tank, really comfortable, compresses to a tiny cragging pack and expands to fit 8 days worth of guide gear. I've asked my local shop, Mountainworks, to order me at least two packs so that if Grivel pulls out again I have enough.
