I just wanted to say that I picked this pack up on Massdrop in June ‘18 and its become a favorite go-to pack. Considering I’ve got over 30 packs, including packs like the Arc Haul and HMG Windrider, that’s saying a lot. It handles 30-35 lbs without an issue (I haven’t tried more). Despite its capacity rating of 46 liters it easily carries what fills my 50l+ packs.
The side pockets are are completely inaccessible unless you stop and take the pack off, the rain cover doesn’t provide full coverage, and there aren’t any straps that come with the pack to connect additional gear to the bottom part of the frame, under the pack.
If you’re getting this pack, I recommend adding shoulder strap pads from Zpacks, shoulder water bottle carriers from Justin’s UL (if you’re a bottle user), and Redpoint 3/4 24” adjustable webbing straps from REI.
