This backpack is great. I used on a 75 mile Philmont trek in New Mexico. Incredibly comfortable ONCE ADJUSTED. If you don't adjust it, it can get a bit uncomfortable.
The airscape stuff offers good ventilation, but seems like a very heavy material. Plenty of space inside and out. Not too many pockets. The water bottles are hard to get to while hiking with it on,I often had to stop to take them out. Custom mold is quite comfy, as is the fannypack/daypack thing on top.
Overall a very nice pack. Plan on adding another review after a small mountaineering expedition this winter.
