Besides the height, I felt this pack was more than adequate for capacity. I read many reviews about the small sleeping bag pouch, but I was able to fit my summer bag(+40), tent, stakes, AND tent rainfly in the pouch with room to spare. I will just strap my tent poles on the side, which has straps specifically for that purpuse. I do have a LARGE winter bag which would be snug, but I would definitly strap that on the outside with all the extra straps this pack has. This pack has hidden pockets just about everywhere, which is nice when you have lots of gear you want to get at without unpacking everything.
I started stuffing all my things in this pack to see what kind of balance it had and it felt great and was very sturdy. I posted a picture on here to see it on a tall person, but please note only had it 3/4 full. I will try and update this post after I use it on the Lake Superior Hiking Trail this fall.
Let be honest though, the real reason I bought this pack was for the price... wow great pack for the money. You could almost compare this pack to a $300+ pack from REI. I hope that Teton keeps the price low and they will sell a TON of these.
I have used this bags dozens of times and everything still works perfectly.
The only issue I have found is the pads around the hips are not as comfortable as some of the other bags I have used. This one starts to make your hips really really sore.
A couple of issues I have with this bag:
1. Quality. I know that this bag is about half to a third of the price of it's competitors but both bags I have had have somewhat questionable build quality. The first one the zip inside the sleeping bag compartment was stitched together so there was no way to open or close the compartment so I returned it. The bag I currently have I took on it's first backpacking trip last weekend and 2 of the cords around the zippers ripped off after the second time I used those zips...
2. I'm not sure what that mesh compartment on the front outside of the bag is supposed to be for but I have a number of foldable trail maps and none of them fit in there, it is way to small.
All being said, not bad. I also own a Teton Summit 1500 that I use for day hikes which is a great bag and have had no issues with that so maybe I have been unlucky with this one.
