Used this pack for several years now (spring, fall, winter) and never had a problem carrying the load. Recently hiked the 95mi "West Highland Way" in Scotland with it and never questioned it once.
I do enjoy the top and front loading flap, made it easy to get to your bag in the bottom without having to pull everything out of the pack when Scotland's weather was giving its best! Thought about looking for a more sexy, internal frame, but my voice of reason keeps asking why, and I continue to listen because nothing compares.... To me, this pack is like owning a Dodge Truck when all the fashion freaks are into the stylish, more sexy (but less versatile) Japanese version of a truck!
Only negative - the hip straps will twist and bind up after several uses! Nothing major!
