This is my most prized piece of gear!! I bought the pack as a spur of the moment buy because it was on sale, and I have been totally impressed with it! Everything on the pack: zippers, adjustment straps, suspension, material, and overall construction, is nothing short of bombproof. Even when you are all loaded up with the pack on, it is very easy to locate and operate all adjustment straps when required.
The top compartment detaches to form a very capable fanny pack. And, although it didn't come with a hydration system, I bought my own Platypus and it fits perfectly in the top compartment. In my opinion, no other pack in any other price range can even hold a candle to the Renegade.
