This pack is great in my profession. I am an Archaeologist and I work in what is called Cultural Resource Management, we conduct archaeological surveys prior to construction of anything that may impact the environment and any documented or undocumented archaeological sites. My job requires a lot of back country hiking that this pack allows me to succeed at. The size is perfect for hiking through tight vegetation, the weight is light and the build is comfortable. So comfortable I forget it is on! And the ease of access allows me to retrieve my equipment with speed, and it is easy to manage as I am definitely a minimalist when it comes to such. Well done and thanks Osprey!
