I love this backpack! Mine has had 3 years of bashing around and held up well, the straps could be a little more durable overall great.
Trying to find another one now wished they made this size again!!

I've used this pack in two adventure races. Good size for races of 12 hours and less in my opinion. I like the waist straps, very comfortable and the pockets come in handy to store food or small gear that you need frequently. The expansion zipper is a nice feature that allows you to stash larger gear such as a helmet in the large compartment.
I guess the greatest comment I can make about it is I never have to think about this pack during a race. Because it's lightweight construction, durability over the long run may be an issue. Highly recommended.
