Pros: Very well made. Good for an organized packer with lots of pockets and zipped compartments. Zippers and pulls extremely well made especially the convenient and clever cinch for the main compartment. Built in rain cover which is easily detached for drying. Separate lower sleeping bag compartment with a separation that can be size-customized or removed to make the main compartment larger. Well padded and comfortable shoulder harness. Terrific hip belt with gadget / snack pocket and very convenient cinching mechanism. I have a small waist and hips and this one of the few packs over 60-liters that can fit me. Really long vertical zipped side compartments holds long (thinner) items such as tent poles.. The suspension keeps you cooler than some other packs, with the hydration pack pretty much right next to my back keeping me cool. It can pack pretty small if you aren't carrying much and can expand a lot if you are carrying more.
Cons: Though the pack is adjustable, there is no indication of the torso length if you already know it. It is trial and error. Once adjusted though you are ready to go. Lots of compartments is bad if you forget which compartment you put your multi-tool...The vertical compartments are flush with the pack and make the main compartment smaller. The same with the hydration pocket. You have to think about how you pack so the hydration pack doesn't push against your back. After a couple of times I figured it out.
Other: The trekking pole stashing mechanism works, but I don't use it much as the poles are normally in my hands. The expandable side mesh pockets aren't that easy to get to, but I haven't found a pack yet that is easy to access. Although this is good for multi-day camping, it probably won't allow your to go a week of nights including meals.
All in all this is a great backpack. I really like it and highly recommend it.
