The best value on the market at the time it was available. Good looking and very well put together. Very nice pocket and zipper layout (zips are welded and h2o tight).
Only NEG: I wish Kelty had placed a shelve in the main compartment separating the lower sleeping bag area from the main area. Pack well my friends because when you stop for that short break you'll find yourself doing a lot of digging around looking for stuff in your "cave" of a backpack!
Other than that this is one trick pony! Lots of clips and loops to allow you to "get going" in that morning rush to continue your adventure. Rides very nice for balance on the hips. The frame layout is very nice. Cool back meshing keeping you cool. I think you'll leave the pocket stiffeners at home, but I do dig the detachable mesh bag for a short hike away from camp.
