Traveled with this pack now on 3 long trips. Pack is great never shown any weakness. Weight seems average, never been a problem. Support is great and the padding and lumber is very well built.

Easy access to the bottom of the pack makes it great to get something out without having to empty the whole pack. My wife also has the same pack and we have no regrets.

Spacious but seems heavier when loaded. Prophet 45 and Lowe Alpine Merak 55 perform better with the same load. Fabric coating easily strips off and the fabric is prone to puncture and abrasion in tropical thorns. Garterized sternum lock leash broke off when I first used this backpack. Suspension straps release over as you go on hiking over rugged terrain.
