This pack is a "gentle giant." It sits nicely on my hips and allows you to forget about what's on your back. You find yourself just concentrating on the task, or mountain at hand. Additionally, it made my Walrus Hurricane Hole tent disappear into its main external pocket and the inner liner went into its detachable fanny pack. This makes for quick and easy camping setup. No more digging for my tent in my pack (especially helpful in the rain).

Great pack. Room enough for my pillow and sleeping pad. It adjusts like a glove to my torso but doesn't hamper my balance when boulder hopping. I've done six nights out and brought gear for others. I could have spent $100-200 more for this quality of pack. I've worn two other great packs out during my life. I'm not a newbie, this is a great pack and even better for the price.

Holy cow this mamma'a big, real big!!! I like the adjustability of it, and the room is great (If you can fill it). I am a little disappointed in the skimpiness of the shoulder strap padding. The material seems a little light weight too. As far as usuability goes though, it is great

It is a very good beginner's pack. It is hard to fill, but if you can it is the way to go.
