Here's what other sites are saying:

With a recommended load up to 45 pounds, the award winning Mountainlight category is back with a classic, the completely updated Mountainsmith Ghost 50 Backpack. The multi-day dual-panel loader is lighter, stronger, and more ergonomically designed for fast and light trail use. The Breezeway sling-type back panel suspension system increases breathability, an innovative ICS Cup waistbelt fitting (Iliac Crest Shelf) transfers and locks the pack load onto the hips for increased stability, and the Lumbar Control Point pad on the lower back panel fully secures the pack load against the user's major weight bearing point - the lumbar/sacrum region.
