Positive Reviews:

My sister and I both got this backpack and LOVE it. It fits perfectly and is comfortable. We backpacked across Europe for 5 weeks using this pack and loaded it full. At one point we probably had 40lbs. It works best and is most comfortable at about 25-30lbs. The pack held up great and neither one of us ran into any problems. Love the rolltop closure for keeping my things inside safe and dry. It also has lots of adjustable straps for carrying any size load. However, it does not come with a rain cover. My shampoo even spilt all in my bag and it cleaned up perfectly. It’s the perfect size, not too big and not too small. I even use this bag on weekend trips to see friends. My sister also used this pack on her month long trip to New Zealand. I plan on using it on a 3 day backpacking/hiking trip in March. I highly recommend this pack!

Never worry about sore shoulders again! Black Diamond's new reActive shoulder straps move with you while keeping the rest of the pack in place on your back. The rolltop will ensure that you keep any water out of your pack. And because this is made by BD, you know that it's high quality!

Pack looks great and appears well made. loaded her up with about 18 lbs on 3 separate occasions and straps dug in pretty good.couldn't get the weight to shift to her hips properly, was uncomfortable after 1 mile. my wife put up with it for 5. thought maybe it just needed some adjusting. we tried everything. decided to return it and give the osprey aura a shot. slightly heavier but may carry a load better with it's aluminum frame. can only recommend this pack for light loads maybe up to 15lbs.
