The North Face Terra 50 is a very comfortable pack. I was going to do some local overnight camping after not having backpacked for 20 years, so I was looking for something smaller than some of the big rigs I had seen.
I went out for a winter camp in a local state forest with a friend and my son. The pack is a little small for going more then overnight, but the outside lashing points held both my Therm-A-Rest pad, and my old (read big) tent. On the first day I had the tent on one side and the pad on the other which was unbalanced, still I was able to adjust the straps to make the load comfortable.
There is a fold-down lumbar support that acts as a sitting pad when taking a rest...very nice. The overall comfort and adjustablility was great, I'm looking forward to more trips.
