There is know doubt that the overall quality and organization is top notch as you would expect from an osprey product, but the comfort seriously lacks for me. No! I did not overpack. After wearing it just for ten minutes, I couldn't wait to take it off! My shoulders and chest where in pain and the hip belt didn't help the cause. The problem may be that I'm a male that weighs 180 lbs with smaller shoulders and a narrower sternum than most. A lot of people love this pack so maybe if your a little broader in the shoulders then this might be the pack for you. Unfortunately that person isn't me!
