Impressions so far :

This pack is heavier than most packs of this size and capacity.

The frame is very rigid; it’s obvious that this pack is meant to carry heavier loads.

Dual zipper lid pockets are awesome

Very impressive lower back support.

Very burly suspension

  1. I have the exact same pack. Love the support system, belt, snugging straps and sanding tools. It’s crazy how well it hauls heavy loads. I don’t love the multi-pouch design as much as you do, and the tiny waterproof hip pockets are ridiculous.
