Awesome pack!!! Its suspension is so light (about 9 oz I believe) that you could even use this as a day pack. Osprey did a wonderful job. Excellent foam for superior comfort. Very nice attention to detail such as loops for carrying skis or extra straps on sides for carrying your tent poles. Hipbelt is a foward pull of course and it is much easier and faster to tighten then traditional side pull hipbelts.
Really well made and designed pack, but don't buy it online. With a sewn in hipbelt you must try it out first, especially if you are of slim built like me. I had to get the Large to fit my torso size, but the hipbelt must be tightned as much as possible.
Conclusion: great pack if you like to travel light. (The pack alone is about half the weight of TNF's Crestone 60.)
