Things that I love:
First of all there is a tiny zipper located at the bottom of the bag close to your back that holds the included rain-cover!
There is a small slit near the top of the pack that your water hose can fit through for hydration
There is a sleeve pocket right next to your back in the bag to hold your water carrier (water bladder) - perfect location because water is one of the heaviest things you have to carry and planning to carry it in that spot is good weight distribution.
I love that there is a carrying handle so you can carry it like a duffel bag - my old bag has a handle near the shoulder straps but I have to lift my arm while carrying it so it wont drag on the ground, this one I don't have to lift I just have to grasp which is much easier on my arms when that thing is loaded up.
I love the reflective fabric and when I compared it in the dark to my old pack this thing lite up like it had electrical power, and even when my flashlight wasn't pointing directly at it you could still CLEARLY see it picking up light even from indirect sources. Would be nice if god-forbid we have to hike at night with companions, they can at least see me.
It has lots of nice zippered pockets to store doo-dads in.
There are also lots of tightening straps with strong connectors.
And best of all it feels comfortable on my back. I have the green/gray/black one and I L-O-V-E it! Can't wait to go backpacking!

need for over night hikes...thanks
I picked up this bag from a big distributor chain for very cheap. It's a huge bag. It's actually too big for me to comfortably use on a backpacking trip. Read morePublished on August 23, 2010 by C. Badham
