I liked this pack but I found that, possibly due to my inexperience with adjusting it, I could never really get it to fit right. It always felt as if I had too much of the weight on my shoulders instead of on my hips.
However, for the beginner backpacker I could not recommend a better starter pack if you can get it at a good price. Its ability to carry a lot of gear make it perfect for the family backpacking trip over the weekend. The multiple pockets are great but I always found that I ended up carrying to much so that's why I am switching to a smaller pack.
Good luck on your search and don't be afraid to get this pack for around $100-150! (We got a good deal.)
