I purchased this backpack in November 2007 and have used it as a daypack (carrying typically 10 kgs) for two treks in Nepal, the most recent being a 20 days Everest Circuit.
My preparation for these treks involved at least a weekly bush walk of up to 19 kms, so it has had very extensive use for over 18 months and has proven to be very comfortable and hard wearing.
The configuration of top and rear entry is ideal, together with two top compartment and rear compartment. The integral rain cover has been invaluable. I have also loaded it internally and externally for camping hikes, weighing up to 19kgs.
It has proven to be an excellent choice for my purposes.
