This pack is a great pack. I personally think that the waist belt is useless as is for any weight if you have a curved back like me.
I replaced my stock belt with the belt from the Aether 70 (isoform). I got just the belt at Eastern Mountain Sports and have had it sewn into the original belt by a seamstress. It was a cheap mod. (fifty dollars) and with that modification the pack is perfect for me.
I live in New England and deal with the cold of The White Mountains and go to the heat and humidity of the Catskills and it performs perfectly.
I carry a bear canister inside on the top and all my gear fits underneath. I average under 30 lbs, closer to 25 fully loaded. I carry 2 liters and although it's not the most easily accessed the suspension is second to none for me.
It's a little big when ducking under fallen tree limbs like in the Green Mountains where its very overgrown and not as maintained but it's worth it.
