Have had the pack a week and the pack is very well made, as you'd expect from Montane. It's also very light compared to my last pack. I like the main draw cord opening design, it's easy to use and much better than the old toggle on other packs. The water reservoir straw pocket easily allows the bite valve to fit through. With some packs you have to remove the camelback dust cover from the bite valve. I have used the pack once so far up Cadair Idris. The pack comfortably fits in all you need for a day trip in the mountains. I am very glad I purchased this pack and look forward to years of use.
