I used this back on a wet wind Scottish trip up two Munros. The capacity was excellent for a day's walk and the belt pockets gave good assess for nibbles and the compass. By the end of the 6 hour trip the pack was worn without noticing it was on my back.

On the down side an outlet point for a bladder would be useful and I was also concerned about the gaps where the shoulder straps entered the pack potential for water ingress. I drypac all my gear and don't use a bladder so no issues for me.

Your hips, shoulders, and torso all move when you're on a fast-paced hike, so wearing a pack that'll move with you makes a lot of sense. Take the Marmot Alpha 25 Backpack, for instance. Webbing slides through the shoulder straps so this pack can shift smoothly with your movements.
