Voted 5/5

Got this pack after using (and being very happy with) it's baby brother the ascent, and have been equally as happy with the XPD.
Great harness.
Am a big fan of the tool tubes very easy to us, with little practice you can remove and replace your tools without taking the pack off. (only wish they had the same on the ascent)
The gear loops are a nice bonus and well located.
A true work horse, with the expandable neck i'm sure it's volume must be 95-100lts.
The removable lid comes in very handy.
