This is not a Dana or an Osprey but it does what it should and once you get the suspension right it is great. It is very no-thrills and should not be used unless you need a huge monster with a medium load weight. I also had issues that had to have the pack repaired for the straps- they took care of no charge over 10 years later.
Very happy with it now that I know the issues with it. You do have to adjust it every time you use it- every time you take it off and put it on. It will pull the weight off the shoulders just like someone said when done right.
