if it wasn't for the adjustable Torso Fit system, this would be my most favorite pack. The buckles of the Torse Fit system rub my back when the pack is loaded because they are too thick and also stick out of the padded area.
Other than the stupid torso fit system, I absolutely love this pack - just the right size for a weekend to week long trips, climbing and backpacking, versatile openings, pockets and straps without being too much. It also carries skis well and a bear can fits just right into the bottom. Durable fabric without making the pack too heavy.
Maybe if I figure out a way to get rid of the torso fit buckles...
