Pros: Lightweight and versatile pack. Straps are super durable and the zippers still pull smooth after years of abuse.

Cons: Doesn't ship with a hydration bladder (if you're into that).

Recommendation: I've been using this pack both on the trail and as a commute/travel pack for a couple years and it's great. When empty, it weighs next to nothing yet it can hold a TON of gear. Helmet pouch on the back, sleeves for 2 water bottles, and snack pockets on the hip belt make this pack a bikepacker's dream.

Model/Year: 2010

Pros: Waist straps cradle hip bones well and prevent the pack from sliding up and down through rough terrain. Shoulder straps feel nice and the ectra pjone pockets come in handy.

Cons: No hydration pouch included???

Recommendation: I was a bit disappointed when my demo didn't come with a hydration pouch but luckily I have spare camelbak pouches galore. The pack itself is well built and fits very securely on my back. Would be 5 stars with a hydration pouch.
