Brilliant backpack, used it in Patagonia. Excellent during long hikes (+15 km) cause very comfortable even with 18 kg on your back. Even the pump systems works (not a gadget).
If needed you can put a lot in there, but I do miss 2 small side bags...and zippers could be working better (new?).
Design is ok, not too fancy or technical just cristal clear what you get. I owned another Alpine Lowe before this one, a Kangtega. Used it for 15 years and never let me down. The fabric itself in the '80 seems to be more sturdy if I compare with the recent Summit.

With Lowe Alpine's new torso and lumbar adjustment system, the 75-Liter TFX Summit Backpack gives you a custom fit for your gear-filled weeklong adventures. Using the hip-belt mounted hand pump, inflate or deflate the lumbar pad to fit the curve of your lower back. Easily adjust this pad's volume as you change into bulkierclothes on the trail. The TFX Summit pack's back length adjusts from 16 to 23 inches to fit your torso, and Lowe Alpine's internal frame flexes and rotates with your natural motion. This allows the hip-belt to move while maintaining stability, so you can hike up rocky terrain without losing your balance. Stash your GPS in the harness pocket for easy access, and keep your odds and ends organized in the two zip-out divider compartments. Once you hit base camp, access your gear from the top or bottom of the Summit Backpack. If you've got a ton of stuff, use the top lid to pack in an extra 20 liters of food, clothes or tools.
