I've used this pack for a few months for work and travel and I LOVE it. I spent a long time looking for something that was highly functional and attractive, but stylishly conservative enough to use for work. It has tons of places to put things and keep them organized, is comfortable to carry, and I love the look. Also, it's much bigger than it looks and I can carry a ton without it standing off my back like a freshman in college trying to carry a full coursload of books. Cons: it's a little heavy, especially when you're switching from something like a Talon 22, which I use on the weekend for day hikes, and not as comfortable to carry if you choose not to use the sternum strap. But that all seems par for the course to me.
