The pack is pretty nice overall, with the pull out rain cover a nice little addition.
The main complaint I have with it is that unless you have it packed as full as it will go, the top pouch will wobble around and fall off center. The straps also tend to work their ways loose as you continue to hike, so you very frequently have to pull them tight again. And there are no external pockets other than the front flap pocket.
It does have a lot to offer though, with a ton of lashings, daisy chains, an electronics pouch, and gear loops. For the money though, not a bad pack at all.
