The hip belt is wide and supportive. You need to remove weight from your shoulders and place it down low on your hips, otherwise you'll get tired much sooner. This allows you to hike further and possibly quicker. It's a must-have item for any serious backpacker.
I did wish the hip belt buckle were different. It seemed tricky to use at times and was sometimes hard to tighten. I wish it had a "pre-set" clasp that could be custom-adjusted to your hip size. The two buckle pieces then come together and simply lock in front, instead of the webbing woven through an "over-under arrangement".
Each side of the hip belt has a zippered pocket large enough to hold some small items like flashlight, insect repellent, water purification tablets, keys,etc. I was glad they were there.
The sides each have a mesh pocket perfect for a Liter water bottle.
There is a pocket/flap area for a water bladder, but I didn't use it.
There is a top flap pocket which holds flat or fairly small things like maps, guides, flashlight, compass, etc.
The main compartment holds quite a bit and the string closure device works very well. Hold the little tab and pull and it opens wide. Squeeze the small locking device and pull the string and it tightens the load securely. This section held my 2 man tent, sleeping bag, clothes and food.
A zippered section 2/3 of the way down has a "floating" floor, which also allows entry of trekking pole, etc. This section works well for mess kit, stove, fuel, etc. You really want to put heavier items down as low as possible in the pack.
At the very bottom is a small zippered compartment to hold the waterproof pack cover. I never used it, but did try to once, only to discover that if you have anything attached to the outside, like a rolled-up foam sleeping pad, the cover won't work. The pack is very water resistant anyway, and even though we got poured on numerous times, my sleeping bag and clothes stayed dry.
There are a number of external attachment points. As mentioned, I attached a lightweight foam sleeping pad.
There is an excellent mesh back support that allows air to flow behind you, keeping you a bit cooler. Very nice!
The shoulder straps are adjustable in height (location on the pack) as well as overall length and have a cross-chest strap that really helps to stabilize the load. This fits torso length 17-22. Measure from top of hip bones to base of neck. This range covers "small" to "tall". For more info search: "backpack torso length measurement".
The pack is rugged, easy to use, has a grab handle and yes, it does stand up (when fully loaded) :)
I really enjoyed using it and soon forgot any misgivings I might have had earlier as it earned my respect and appreciation with its many good qualities. All of the zippers worked really well. I never had any jams.
Pricing varies and I bought this earlier in the season (mid-May) before demand firmed up the price and paid $123 delivered. Thanks Amazon!
I really like the green color vs. black.
I recommend this item and would buy it again.
If this review helped you in any way, please indicate that. Thanks!

Definitely recommend this pack.
The airspeed back panel I also like a lot because it seems to help with me sweating all over the pack.
For packability the main compartment is able to hold pretty much everything I have. I'm using this for long section hikes. Just took it out for 100 miles and I'm going to go back out there and attempt another 200-300 miles.
As far as for inclement weather, I have yet to really test it outside of a drizzle. It does have the built in rain cover to the bag. For many types of backpacks people say that no matter what your stuff will get wet even with the rain cover attachment (not specifically just for this bag, for any bag). I have a contractor bag in the backpack that I keep essentials in (like sleep system) as an added protection to the rain. I also use dry bags and keep stuff like electronics and med supplies in ziplock bags.
Some features I am not a fan of:
The side pockets. I lost my tent poles unbeknownst to me due to them falling out of the side pockets. I've also lost a couple of other items from the side pockets. I now only use them for my water bottles, 1l smartwater bottles. I probably will not store anything in those side pockets other than that.
The hip belt pockets I find are difficult to use. When I have the pack strapped to me, I can open the hip belt pockets with one hand, however I need two hands to close them. So i have to awkwardly reach my arm across my body to pull the zipper shut, while i use my other hand to hold the actual pocket to allow the zipper to close. This involves me having to stop walking, and It is just inconvenient since I imagined using these pockets on the go.
Finally the brain of the bag i'm not a fan of either. It is not removable so it won't function as a day pack. The zipper to open it is also way too narrow. You really have to jam your hand in their to pack stuff in the brain. If you have one you will see that the back part of the brain is very roomy and you can stuff some more bulky things in here, but you have to jam it through the small opening to get it in there.
As a final word I would recommend this bag for a lower cost entry to backpacking. I'm planning on using this for a while, and upgraded whenever I have a more solid feel for what I'm looking for in a bag after I gain more hiking and backpacking experience. The one reason that made my decision final to buy this was the Osprey name, and the warranties and guarantees they have on their products. Looking forward to many more miles with this.

This Osprey works for me..... Adjustable, vented so that there is a gap between your back and the rucksack itself, lightweight and superbly manufactured. I can see why they are so highly rated.
