This pack is the only pack I have owned and after six years of using it I still think it's a great pack. The pack is big enough to carry a week's worth of stuff and is built to last. The water bottle holders work great and the side pockets are wonderful.
BUT, I think that the pack weighs a lot (5 1/2-6 lbs.) and is almost too big for what I need. If I were to buy another pack it would about 4,000 cub in instead of 5,600. For a first pack this works great, but for someone who weighs everything, like me, this isn't the best choice for a pack. I had a hard time adjusting the metal stays.
So after all that I would give it about 3 1/2 stars.
