Everyone has a favorite manufacturer and for me it's Mountainsmith for my packs. The Trillium is my second pack by the company. I love how the straps fit around my chest. I like that I can unzip from the outside and retrive my sleeping bag from the bottom w/o removing everything. When packed correctly I haven't had any discomfort at all even on long hikes. The front can be removed and used as a daypack, which I really like. My only dislike is that the water pockets don't hold the big Nalgene bottles. Highly recommend.
