This company has an awesome setup for their packs. This pack is perfect for trips lasting less then two weeks+. It has the best fit and performance of all the packs I've ever owned.

The perks are features consistent with all of Osprey's packs- to include heat molded waist straps for a quicker fit and shorter break in period, an indented area behind your neck so that the pack does not get in the way of your looking directly over head, a standard mini-ruck with waist straps for...whatever...and a "suspension" system which softens the load. Side pockets commonly used for water bottles were easily within reach.

The company makes good on their promise to send you a free hat if you send in a picture of you using your pack. I've seen nicer hats, but the price was right.

This is a perfect all around pack. By distributing most of the weight onto your hips instead of the shoulders, it carries loads very easily. I have had it packed with two weeks of gear at over 75 lbs as well as taking it on long day hikes. It's a little heavy for day hikes, but the removable top loader and stays allow for a lot of weight reduction. Beware of excessively long straps all of the pack though.
