This is an amazing pack. It's extremely comfortable when properly adjusted. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that the opening for the sleeping bag compartment is smaller than it looks. It was a tight fit for a winter-weight synthetic bag, even in a compression sack as tight as I could get it. The compartment is adjustable on the inside, so it will hold any size bag, but the zipper opening is a little too small. You can undo the compartment divider and load a sleeping bag from the top, but its a hassle if you have other gear on top of it and just want the bag out.
Great product from Osprey, it survived flawlessly during a 30 day backpacking trip around Peru. Went from the coast to the high mountains to the amazon and have ZERO complaints. I also did not have the opportunity prior to the trip to get the belt fitted as it is advertised but I felt it molded to me within the first 3 days of use. This is more expensive then other packs but the last thing you want to worry on a trip about is if your gear is going to hold up to the use.
