To Heavy
I have used this pack quite a bit for long day hikes and to carry rock climbing gear into the woods. Its nice for hauling heavy loads, but the pack itself when empty is super heavy. its almost 5 lbs when empty! I have never used it for an over night pack, but I think this would make a good weekender pack. The straps do not open and close smoothly, you really have to work with them for any kind of adjustment as well. The back panel suspension is very nice and feels like a mini trampoline on your back, even though you don't sweat much on your back, its not worth the extra weight that went into this "high tec" design.
