Well, Just got this guy in and WOW, it is a lot larger than i expected and that is good.
Large bucket pack which will hold more than enough gear.
Initial fitting, frame feels very comfortable although, belt strap is a little short for me. (Easy Fix)
Outer Pockets seem sized right for lots of must reach items.
Fabric may be a little light but will not know durability until i field test.
Very satisfied at first viewing and for the cost, you can't go wrong.
