This pack was exellent! I've taken it to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, Arizona, to the top of volcanoes in Indonesia, and lived in it for 8 months straight. It has survived incredible feats of resistance, Sumatran Rain storms, busses, airplanes, boats, ferries, the outdoors in all temperatures -40 C to + 40 C. And all this with only a few scrapes and stains. 1 slightly torn belt.
It was very comfortable, thanx to the moldable internal frame I could carry large volume and mass, yet thanx to its narrowness, I could scramble down near sheer faces in the Grand Canyon. It was easy to access, and the 15 Liter extension came in handy in Asia as I picked up souvenirs, It could grow into an 85L pack!!!
It's highly recomended, but the 2 small side pouches are difficult when your pack is stuffed full.
