This is my third backpack. I like it very much. Once I learned how to adjust the back pad and shoulder straps it was like a dream. I carry around 50+ pounds and find it works well with heavy loads.
I like the extra pockets so that I don't have to dig deep into my backpack to find the little things that I carry.
The pack is very comfortable.
I think if I was to change things, it would be two things. First, the top has a belt on it so that you can use it for small side trips from base camp. Personally, I find it would be much more effective if the top had two mesh pockets on the belt for liter sized (or any for that matter) water bottles.
Also, after I purchased this pack, I saw an advertisement for another that showed an X-style cross strap for the shoulder straps.
When this pack is properly adjusted, it is very comfortable, but I would like to see an X-style strap between the shoulder straps.
