I got this pack a while ago as a hand-me-down. I really liked all the pockets on it and the fact that it has an adjustable torso, but it had one serious drawback. The hipbelt would not stay snug so all the weight ended up on my shoulders.
I even took the pack down to REI to get a replacement hipbelt, but even on the new ones the hip belt would not stay snug. The store clerk said she had seen a lot of people with the same issue on this pack and she thought it must be a manufacturing issue.
Unfortunately this pack never even made it out on the trail with me because if the hip belt won't stay snug and support the weight the pack is basically useless.
