After waiting for it to hit the retail stores, I finally purchased this product. However, once loaded, this pack sagged horribly in back, making me feel like I was carrying a bag of rocks, although it was packed well.
The hiking pole attachment on the shoulder strap, cut into my arm, leaving an open wound, something I didn't need on the trail. I had about 22 lbs total in the pack, not even a large load by any standards.
I did like the many features on this pack, including the interior water sleeve, the hip belt pockets, that held everything I wanted them to, the side pockets, which made it simple to get at my water bottles and put them back in.
I love the unisex styling, as not all gals can use a women's specific pack. The hipbelt and shoulder straps were reasonably comfortable.
This pack is plenty big enough to hold anything one would need for a week long+ trip, if packed correctly. However it just isn't the pack for me.
