Review by dls458 on Mar. 02, 2011
Pack is great! The best feature, by far is the hiking pole stow straps. When snowshoeing, I could quickly switch between my ice axe and snowshoe poles. The pack itself is of typical Osprey quality - Bomber. It fits nicely on my back, even when loaded with 50-60lbs of gear. I'm pretty sure I could fit a personal chef and kitchen in there if I wanted to.
Hip belt is a little flimsy(although it does articulate well), and like my Atmos, the hydration sleeve is in the most inconvienient place possible in the main compartment.

Review by Slothman on May. 03, 2012
lightweight, bomb proof, very comfortable, holds loads well, best pack I've had (better than an arc'teryx I also own).
would be nice if it had hip belt pocket for easy trail access, loads over ~50-60 lbs start to get uncomfortable.

Review by brifrios on Jul. 15, 2008
This backpack has a great arched back, which makes it so comfortable to carry around for long periods of time. The meshed airspace between the bag and your back keeps you from getting a back full of sweat!
You must pack strategically, it is tough to get to the items on the bottom of the pack.

Review by lschwartzel on Mar. 24, 2011
Very comfortable, large enough for a long trip but still light
Straps can get annoying, top is difficult to remove, pricy
Another Osprey pack since when you go Osprey, you can't go back
