This pack is awesome as hell. I took it on a NOLS course this past summer which consisted of 30 days in the remote areas of the Wind River Range of Wyoming.
The MicroFit system enabled me to customize the pack to fit me, and that's extremely important while carrying an 80lb load. Furthermore, the stablitiy of this pack is superb; it didn't force me to lose my balance while crossing such things like bolder fields, rivers, and steep snow slopes.
And the detachable lid is excellent for day hikes. Overall, this pack is one of the best around. For the price, I don't think you can find anything better. It's big enough for extended trips and small enough for weekend excursions: an enthusiastic two thumbs up!!
