All around a great pack. Took it up to MCMWTC in Bridgeport, CA for two weeks and it performed well. I was hoping that it would be more comfortable than it is, but 70-80 lbs of gear on your back in the mountains is 70-80 lbs of gear on your back no matter what. It balances the weight better than the SI ILBE pack, and the multitude of external pockets make it worth the money, I think.
Pros: Easy Access via Outer Pockets, Plenty of Space for Gear
Cons: Not Any More Comfortable
