Great pack overall

Carried it for 5 days on the BHT and although it was a little overkill for what you really need on a hut-to-hut hike I can say that I was glad to have it with me. Was able to pack changes of clothes for each of the days on the trail, an extra pair of pants, 2 merino fleece jackets, a down jacket, sleeping bag+liner, a body towel, personal hygiene bag, small first aid kit, a Tenba BYOB 9 containing my camera, some light trail food, plus a number of small items in the lid. You can easily carry a tent on the outside as there are a number of straps on the sides (they also go a little under the pack) and on the top (under the lid). The mesh pocket on the front is large enough to fit a jacket. The pack is very stable on the back which you'll appreciate if you have to navigate fairly acrobatic routes.

As for downsides, I found it relatively hard to fit a larger water bottle (Camelbak Chute 1L) in the side pockets if the pack is fully loaded and the contents are packed tight. You may also want to secure the bottle with a sling if you store it using the side opening of the pocket (which has a loop to be used for this purpose). The inside mesh of the carrying system is very prone to scuffing so try your best not to rub it against rocks or anything rough when you move the pack around.
