I'm typically a lightweight backpacker, but when I decided to take my 10-year old daughter on the week-long Daisetsuzan Traverse, I decided lightweight had to go out the window. I was between this pack and an Osprey when I found this one on sale. Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this pack. I can haul all my stuff, a 2-man tent,a week's food for 2, and a bear canister with more room to spare. I was hauling 55-60 lbs and the pack felt comfortable with the waist contraption doing most of the work. I had read bad reviews about the plastic waist contraption breaking on these packs, but I believe Gregory fixed any issues with this. In fact, I took a nice 50 yard tumble down a 45-degree ice field and the pack made out better than expected. I broke a load adjuster on one of the shoulder harnesses and trashed the rain cover. Everything else came out unscathed and I was able to get the load adjuster fixed for $10 at my local cobbler.
I've recently gotten more serious about photography which again doesn't mesh very well with my old lightweight hiking habits. So, I intend to get more mileage out of this pack.
