Great pack!
I've been using this pack since 2009 as a lightweight day pack for hiking, backpacking, and mountaineering. It's a lightweight pack and it's comfortable packing under about 25 pounds. It's still roomy enough for a good amount of gear and water.
There are plenty of pockets to organize your stuff inside and out, although there are less pockets than on the Atmos 65.

The backpanel, straps, and hipbelt are by far my favorite features of this pack! They keep you cool in hot weather and are super comfortable. Even when it's loaded full, I sometimes forget I'm wearing the pack. The compression keeps the load from moving too.

The "light panels" on the main compartment are really great. It's not something you notice (it's not even on the product tag or webpage) until you're peering into your pack on a sunny day and notice that it's lit up in there and you can see everything (provided your pack isn't full to the brim).

The Stow on the Go system for trekking poles was something that I thought I'd never use, but its become one those 'can't live without' things in the mountains. My buddy has the 2008 Atmos and when we stop to store our poles I can do my own, but he either has to have me strap his to his pack for him or take off his pack to do it. This might seem trivial, but it saves time and effort. They stay nice and secure too, but it takes a little getting used to knowing how far they stick out behind you if you have 2-piece or less-collapsible poles.

My only criticism of the pack has been that it isn't in the least bit water resistant. If you get caught in a rainshower without a cover, expect to gain some weight. I got a raincover and solved that problem, though I still keep the important things in garbage bags and such to keep them dry.

Overall this has been a great pack. Lightweight, extremely durable, comfortable and handy. Everything I could ask for. Not to mention it looks nice too.
