I found this pack to be ok. I took it 26 miles on the AT. With lighter loads it's great, but when fully loaded it's kinda awkward. Still it's nice and simple and when climbing and doing more technical moves it can be a nice pack to have. It can also be hard to find your things with just that one big main compartment that can only be accessed from the top.

Overall it's a simple pack but i doubt i'll get getting another one.

I have used this backpack for travelling home every weekend, carrying pretty heavy loads. Thanks to the rather stiff hip-belt this was no problem. The shoulder belts are pleasantly thick and distribute the weight very well.

The only remark I have is the internal load fixator, It is placed too high, which results that the cavity which it should create doesn't have the effect it should have.

Overall this is a very pleasant pack which allows me to cary heavy loads over a long distance.

This pack is fine if you're going out for a few days, but not what I was using it for. I took it on the second half of my through-hike of the Appalachian Trail. It is very comfortable with light and smaller loads, but it's a thin pack so if you pack it full, it fills up high instead of wide, which can make you feel pretty unbalanced if you have precarious walking to do. I have learned not to trust the North Face micro fit pack series. I had the North Face Cascade before this and both packs encountered the same problem. The nylon area where the shoulder straps and the hip belt meets rips apart after about sixty or eventy days of hard hiking.
