Its a great sized backpack, but lost stars based on how uncomfortable carrying the load was. You can really feel where they cut back for weight in the shoulder straps. This is the only bag I've eber backpacked with that rubbed skin off and left me seriously bruised and bleeding in some spots of my shoulders. It does not meet the "30-40lb" carry weight it claims. I had a 28lb load and the afore mentioned injury came after only 17 miles. I wouldn't recommend or repurchase this bag. I would return it if I hadn't already used it outdoors.
