Was originally impressed with the 30L version in terms of weight and features so investigated and bought 44L version. Required for long mountain days, carrying group/ML kit, winter mountain days or lightweight overnighters.
Features that attracted me were ample pockets easily accessible so that I can reach/stow essential items on the go and/or without having to take the pack off - compass etc fits perfectly in the shoulder strap pockets (perhaps phone in the other strap pocket on a dry day). I can stow a folded map & case easily in the hipbelt pocket, the other is great for stowing lgoves or a hat on the move (although I may add to the zip pulls on these pockets to make them more easily located by a gloved hand). The traditional side pockets seem fine for a water bottle and are adequate for my 1L nalgene bottle (although perhaps I'd prefer a deeper pocket for that purpose).
I thought I'd miss the more usual lid pockets but the zipped front pocket ( behind the usual stretchy mesh panel) more than makes up for these and the inner zipped pocket near the top at the rear of the bag gives an extra secure storage option.
The fit of the bag is comfortable, feels secure (no wobble on walking, no bouncing up and down) and so far it seems to have adequate airflow on my back (and I get run hot and sweaty when out so it has to do a good job here).
Construction seems solid with the materials far sturdier than perhaps suggested by the packs light weight.
Overall I've found this a well-designed, well thought-out, well-constructed pack that's enjoyable to use.

Durchdacht, genial konstruiert und mit dem verstellbarem Rűckensystem perfekt anpassbar.
Mit nur gewogenen 848 Gramm und Tragesystem ein Rucksack für dwn Ultealight Bereich, der sogar den ebenfalls in der engen Auswahl gelegenen Ospray Levithy 45 L durch die vielen mehr Details in den Schatten stellt. Noch dazu eine tolle Optik eine weitere Farbe Grau hell wűrde das ganze perfekt machen. TOP MONTANE!!! DANKE
