This backpack is absolutely great. It has top and front access to the main compartment which is extremely convenient. Furthermore it has many pockets throughout which are fantastic for organizing and grouping gear. The adjustable frame/shoulder straps are remarkably easy to use and allow for a good deal of adjustment (particularly for people between 5'4" and 5'10"). Granted, I would still recommend trying it on first as with all packs.
Once I got the pack dialed in, I carried about 45 lbs load with ease and comfort! The convenience of being able to remove the "lid" and waist strap to make a fanny-pack is pretty neat and could be very useful, though I have not used said feature. Construction feels solid and zippers run smooth.
As I found out, it appears to be pretty water resistant...or so I found today in the Smokys after I forgot my pack-poncho.
I would definitely recommend this pack and it is a very appealing price.
