"Its a beautiful pack. I'm still impressed at how well it fits and the over-all quality it has. I've had it out on multi day trips, wilderness first aid courses, traveling and canoeing, and I have few complaints. However, those complaints would be :
- The narrow profile is nice for some activities, but can make packing for a trip more difficult.
- There are no side pockets, I miss being able to grab something quickly in mid-trail.
- The bottom comression straps on both sides are useless if you have a water or fuel bottle in the holders.
- The cost is 360$ canadian, after taxes.

- One more plus, the internal water bladder is a great feature, I don't need to throw off my pack every time I want a drink.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this pack again, in fact, I've recommended it to just about everyone I know."

"I love this pack! I bought mine 6 years ago and have logged hundreds of miles w/ it and it's still a champ. In the winter I will use the full volume and the summer I remove the lid, becasue I don't need it and it saves weight."
