Great Pack. Wore this pack on a three day hike through the Adirondacks. Carried about 45# in comfort. Excellent protection from the elements. It rained a whole day, and the contents on the main compartment remained dry. The rubberized coating appears durable and waterproof. The hood covers the top opening well.
Nice ventilated back pad, works great. Made of foam-rubber.
Three exterior neoprene pockets are easily accessible and are good for storing wet stuff.
Still skeptical about the durability of the proprietary skeletonized buckle on the hip belt, but so far it has worked fine.
Been a good pack. Recommended.
Excellent pack period. Comparable to Arc'teryx Bora…

Excellent pack period. Comparable to Arc'teryx Bora and Naos at a better price point and a bit lighter, better materials and weight transfer than the Osprey Atmos...pleasantly surprised.
In a nutshell, the pack recently went up Rainier with me. 50+ pounds to Camp Muir and then light and tight to the Summit. Pockets and gear attachments were designed as if Mountaineering was also in mind.
I'll be putting it to more tests here soon and will provide updates as needed. For now, I'm very happy with the purchase.
