This pack was awful. The hip straps would not tighten enough to keep the pack from sliding down off my hips resulting in the entire weight of the pack pulling on the shoulder straps. This wasn't because I didn't try, the hip straps were tightened right down to the side pockets which ended up not being side hip belt pockets at all, but right in front of my stomach. The salesperson at Campers Village - the experts on all things Osprey - said that all I needed to do was to keep fiddling with it because I would eventually find the sweet spot. I did when I leaned forward so the the pack would stay on my back and not have it continually slide off my hips and end up being carried solely on my shoulders. So I had to do most of my hike never able to walk upright because of the limited adjustment capabilities of this awful, poorly designed excuse of a contraption Osprey Co. tries to call a backpack. It spoiled my entire trekking experience, and forced me to end it early.
