This has been a reliable and comfortable pack. Mine is the 60 liter model. I've had it for a few years and I've taken it on a few trips and have probably carried more than was intended. I used this pack on my first overnight trip to the Buffalo National River in Arkansas. Got lost and ended up bushwhacking my way for about 5 miles carrying close to 55 lbs of gear. The pack never stressed of strained me.
I've purchased lighter packs and more expensive packs, but they don't seem as comfortable to me. I also appreciate the pockets for organizing gear. The outside pocket is big and deep, but the zipper goes down far enough that you can get at anything in the bottom.
Great quality comfortable bag.
