This backpack is pretty good, but my one complaint is that it does not have a separate compartment or zipper for a sleeping bag/pad. I usually pack my wife's bag (as well as her sisters) and while you can fit a fair amount of gear in here, it could really use easy access to the bulky stuff you want to remove first when setting up camp (such as your sleeping items). It gets the job done, but I prefer the Gregory Deva (which her sister uses).
I got it for my girlfriend for our Valentine's Day backpacking date, she hasn't used but has been playing with it none stop and loves it so far. The test will be in a few weeks.
