This multi-day pack is well worth the price. I just spent two nights at Chimney Pond in Baxter State Park and was able to pack in everything I needed. Very comfortable for long day hikes and multi-night stays. There is plenty of space for all my gear. Front load and top loading options. The side pockets make it easy to get at the stuff I need most often. The pack is easily adjustable to fit my torso size. The rigid waist strap helps get the weight of the pack off my shoulders. Rugged and well constructed with waterproof zippers to keep my gear secure and dry. My only issue is the pack weighs slightly over 6 lbs.
Number of Pockets: 6
Max. Load Carried: 75 lbs.

This pack is not too bad for the money. It's comfortable for the money. My two complaints are the poorly placed water bottle pockets. You can barely reach them with the pack on. The only other complaint I have is the seam came apart one time (possibly my fault).
Number of Pockets: 5? Depends what you call a pocket
Max. Load Carried: 65 Lbs
Height of Owner: 5' 11"
Price Paid: $165
The bag is great. It is well padded and balanced and holds more than enough. The separate sleeping bag compartment is a big help. I have used it on many hikes, summer and winter, and my only complaint is that it has no ice ax loops. Oh well.
