Untitled Review
This is a great pack for long day hikes. It's relatively light, has good suspension, is very comfortable, and holds all my gear (including 4 liter hydration bladder). I really don't have anything bad to say about the pack yet but if I find a shortcoming I'll edit this review.

Used for Ice
I have been using this pack for several years now. So far it has held up to the abuse, as well as being quite a functional little pack. One thing that can be cumbersome is the method that technical ice tools are attached to the exterior of the unit. They stay secure but get snagged if you have radical tools when attaching them through the loops. Getting my leash-less tools in are a downright nightmare. Other than that, it's my favorite pack.
