I heard about these puppies when I was searching New Zealand for Macpac gear. The guys in all the shops totally talked them up. Luckily I was able to find a shop in Christchurch that actually had one (they have been selling out within days of shipping).
All I can say is wow. This pack totally redefines how a pack feels on your back and it truely does move with you. No matter how full you cram it, the weight disappears when you put it on your back. And the best part for my backcountry canoe trips - the pack is completely submersible! Your stuff stays dry!
There are about 8 different straps that you can use to adjust the fit and the backsupport itself can be bent to fit you perfectly. Aarn has a 2 page fitting guide for each of their packs to instruct exactly how to provide the best fit.
This is a great medium-sized pack for lightweight, go-fast trips. Those kiwis really know what they're doing.
