I bought this pack 9 years ago and have used it for my twice a year 2-3 day trips to Allegheny National Forest.

I am 5'8" and it fits perfectly. It is well made.

I am able to fit my Campmor 0 degree down sleeping bag into the lower compartment and my tent poles rolled up into my sleeping pad can be fastened by using the top cover.

I don't think you can buy this model any longer, but if you manage to find one it is worth it.

The only downside I can think of is that it has no integral capabilities for holding a water bladder - but I don't use those so was no issue for me.
