1) much more room than my old bag
2) internal frame
The 'more room' part is a no-brainer: it's great! I still like to pack my sleeping bag & sleep pad on the outside (just a personal preference), but both could go inside. I used to pack my tent on the outside of my external frame as well, but that doesn't work on this pack if I put the sleeping bag/pad on the outside. So I find that if I take my tent out of its bag, I can pack it into this pack using the side pockets (tent on one side, poles/stakes on the other), leaving the entire inside of the bag for clothes/food/supplies, etc...
Moving from an internal to external frame hasn't been all that easy, but it's getting better. I was very used to the external frame feel (and I had a habit of placing one hand on the top of the frame as I hiked). I've been able to adjust this one to feel good, but it does ride a bit differently and took some time. If you're switching from external frame to internal, I'd suggest to do what I did: load it up to your normal weight load and take for a few short hikes to get a feel for it before you do a multi-day trip.
My typical use is 3-day, 2-night hikes of around 25 miles.Read more ›
