Overall, it looks like a very well thought out pack. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it will smush up into my suitcase with no trouble; actually I'll probably just lay it flat. The back panel has a nice airy foam pad to help air move between you and the pack, but it you're hoofing it in the heat, I doubt it will stop you from soaking. The side stretch pockets are a bit too small to securely carry water bottles. The old style was better (this is why four stars).
Nit pick: the front web compression strap differs from the old style (and many other bags) by using really thin, narrow webbing vice shock cord; this looks cool out of the packaging, but cinching it up a time or two tends to twist the webbing and the appearance is not as nice. A decent shot at aesthetic innovation that won't stand the test, I'm betting. On the other hand, the webbing will continue to function well I think, and you don't have to replace shock cord that has lost its stretchiness.
Overall, I'm pretty happy. The new Magnum shows a lot of promise. I'd say it's probably a bit larger bag than I need, but I seem to end up carrying things for LB and daughters on vacation so maybe that's good.
I used this pack on a free solo of an ice climb in Pinnacle Gully, Mt Washington. In it I had: A 30 m 8mm rope, 30 m of 4 mm (pull line), MH phantom Jacket, extra pair of gloves, 500 ML water bottle, Headlamp, 2 ice screws, belay device, v-thread tool, several cords for v-threads and a few biners and slings. I had my crampons and ice tools strapped on for the approach. Forget about the elastic cord. The only thing is might hold is a layer that you shed (fleece, etc). While climbing, I didn't even know I had the pack on. The only complaint is the waist belt. One, the buckles didn't hold and both sides fell off in the trunk of my car. I had to tie small knots at the ends so it didn't happen while wearing it. I have a 34" waist and the belt just fit over my light winter layer (heavy base layer and single layer goretex). The waist belt should be longer and the ends sewn so it doesn't fall off.
BTW, It IS hydration compatible even though it says "no" to the left. It has an inside sleeve and an opening for the tube.
I've had it for a few months using it for taking my climbing shoes to the gym and going on day hikes. Its nicely put together with a very strong material. The straps and back are made it a different material that makes the pack very vented so you don't have a sweaty back.
I'd buy it again its a great pack. It looks good, works well, durable, what else do yea want?
I like this pack: Light, comfortable, and fits everything I need for a 10-mile (or more) day in the woods. I have mostly been using it for day hikes and longer trail runs. The cinch straps work great for compressing the pack.
