I love the pack. As an amateur photographer, I carry a lot of gear on my hikes, including a field scope and tripod, with a combined weight of about 35 pounds. 35 pounds in this pack is a lot different than 35 pounds in my external frame Camptrails backpack that I've used for 21 years. It has so many adjustments that I forget that I have it on. I'm currently in the market for a replacement to my external frame pack. And it will be an Osprey!
