Not bad pack. Sturdy and durable. Adjustable stays for torso length, back wicking/air mesh keeps back cool. Detachable top doubles as fanny pack for excursions from base camp. Side access, lots of lash points.

Cons: It's heavy, it rides too low on my tailbone no matter how short I make the torso length, and if you use the internal water reservoir with cold or frozen hydration pouch, the condensation gets the rest of your gear wet.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Number of Pockets: 2 (not including a few small side pockets)
Max. Load Carried: about 37 lbs (not incl. weight of pack)
Height of Owner: 6 ft. 0 in.

I've used this pack for about four years now. Those years included many two- or three-day weekend trips. Longest trip was six days in Torres del Paine.

Pros: Comfortable. Plenty of adjustment straps. Side access zipper. Detachable top that doubles as a small lumbar pack. APS allows adjustment to wide range of torso lengths. Hydration bladder. Durable.

Cons: Heavy (7 lbs) by today's standards. Wish it had a large center pocket on back.
