Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $125
Light(ish), tough, with just enough pockets. Great multi-day pack.
I have the older steel blue version which I believe has a larger capacity. Not ultralight but for as large and tough as it is I can't complain.
I love the big J zip which let you get to nearly every layer in the main bag. The hip-belt buckle disintegrated the first time I used it. Very annoying but none of the smaller buckles have been a problem, even in the winter. Great suspension and ventilation. Starts to hurt around 50lbs.
This is my main pack and I'm quite happy with it.
