We had a little problem with one of the ones we ordered (they had sewed the belt on upside down) but, as always, Amazon handled the return fast and professionally and the two we have now couldn't be better made.
These packs are not only very well made but extremely well thought out in most ways...
The ability to carry a rifle or axe or tent poles on the side is great. it even has tough abrasion-resistant patches on the side of the pack so that whatever you are carrying won't wear a hole in the side of your pack. The straps can be snugged up tight to hold your items in place but have quick-release buckles so you can get to your rifle fast.
It is a HUGE pack which can carry far more than you probably want to haul.
The "shelf" is sturdy and can take a lot of weight if you convert the pack to "cache hauling" mode.
The tie-down straps for cache--hauling are strong and easy to use (there are even two "wings" on each side to help stabilize your load).
There is an adjustable crossbar on the top for securing things on the top of the pack... I found that it kept knocking my head but then I adjusted it and it is fine now... but if you strap things to the top of your pack like pads, wet gear, etc. you'll like this... it also makes it easier to hang your pack up on a tree.
The pockets on this mother are all large and handy, most have tie-down webbing on them and since they are so big, you have the option of carrying bulkier items like water bottles and scopes in them.
The shoulder and hip belts are all very well padded, adjustable even for big guys like me and are very comfortable.
The belt has some good-sized pouches on it as well as a webbing loop on each side for attaching a sidearm which is a HUGE benefit in my book!
The only things that I would change is that it has one large compartment in it... the top and bottem compartments have drawstring separators in them and you can get into either the top of the bottom of the compartment from the outside... some people prefer this kind of set-up especially if you are hauling larger or bulkier items. But I grew up with the old-fashioned backpacks that were separated into an "attic" and a "basement" so I'm used to organizing my gear that way. This is in no way a problem, just a personal preference.
I would also recommend that you remove the little rings that hold the pins (that hold the pack to the frame) and replace them with some small "hitch pins" so that you can convert the pack to cache mode more easily. I bought a nice little assortment here on Amazon (Tradespro 835808 Hitch Pin Assortment, 150-Piece), it has several sizes so you can choose what works best for you when you have cold fingers... ;-)

After downing a nice 5x5, I used this to haul the meat back up to camp and down to the freezer at the base of the mountain. The day after I took the elk, I wore this pack from 8am - 11pm hauling meat off of the mountain (had to make 2 trips). At the end of the day, I didn't have any chaffing from the pack or anything other than general soreness. Now, if I could only get the blood stains out :)
