Like magic
After much research, I came down to purchasing this or the Gregory Baltoro. After trying it on, I didn't want to take it off. It's like magic. It's mind blowing how comfortable and efficient it is when it's loaded. The trip I've taken it out on was for 4 nights, 5 days, and 55 miles, and it was infinitely easier than the previous year without this pack. I can't say enough about it.

Total game changer for backpacking and multiday climbing
I've never spent good money on a backpack until this one. For years I've dealt with sore shoulders, acne on my back (from backpacking), rubbing on my tailbone, and basic features. I can't believe what a difference this backpack made for me and highly recommend it. The pack makes even a 50lb load feel comfortable with the way it hugs your hips and back, and the mesh panel breathes well and my skin is much clearer after trips. The hip pockets are large enough for a ton of small equipment or food, the day pack is functional for alpine climbing, compression straps tighten the load against your back, the hiking pole holders are super convenient, it holds ice axes well, and the dual water bottle holders are reachable and functional.

I can't get over how much I love this backpack. It's really made me enjoy backpacking and heavy loads a lot more.

I also got this for thruhiking the Foothills Trail. Im also a member of the FTC. Ive had this pack for a couple of weeks now. So far I have put several miles on it already. I normally am out somewhere on the trail or nearby every weekend. This pack has been great. Especially for heavy multi day loads.
