Review by romleinster on Jul. 11, 2011
The pack is huge
Hipbelt (with the Scherer cinch) is really nice
Good access to the main compartment, top loading and with a back zipper, and a bottom zipper.
Brain detaches into a daypack
For its size, it's pretty comfortable
Very reasonably priced compared to other packs its size
The pack is huge (now that I have a smaller pack too, I usually do everything I can to limit what I bring so I don't have to haul this monster.)
Osprey Aether and Xeon packs (if you want to make the price jump)

Big. Looks like too many straps along the front.
Packs are never big enough, just too darn heavy. The lower access panel seems accessible.
I looked at the Kelty RED Cloud series a few years ago but ended up getting a Jansport Rockies 100 (found in a closeout deal for just over $100). The lower compartment as well as the top have straps to tighten the load, which the RED Cloud seems to lack. While I like the feature of adding load on top, I find packs harder to maneuver when I put much up there.

Nice size. Lots of pockets, organization and access. Decent hip belt. Lumbar pack lid is cool and useful. Adjustable frame. Durable materials.
I can never get the shoulder strap/load lifters to work properly. I usually adjust them before I put the pack on (not the right way to do it, but it works, kinda). Not great packed above 35 pounds.
Zippers are a little weak. Zipper on sleeping bag compartment usually don't open easy.
The North Face Crestone.

Good for Long trips or short trips where you may have to take extra gear. Plenty of space, esy to pack and organize. Tuff - will last
Careful - easy to over pack so not recommended for an overnighter

sturdy suspension, fits everything (and more)
Too big. Velcro everywhere to scratch you

Plenty of room on the trail or the plane with pockets like a external frame.
