Very happy with this pack
I bought this pack because it was the lightest available off the shelf in Sydney Australia. Macpac was the only company that offered a pack under 1 kg. I have used the pack three times on long range overnight hikes, 50:50 on singletrack and through the scrub, on very hilly terrain. Despite my initial fears that the light mesh exterior would be damaged by the harsh Sydney scrub, the pack looks as good as new. The way you can pack 3 x 1.5 L water bottles in the mesh pockets has been very useful. The frameless design has worked exceptionally well ...(pack your gear with care, obviously!), and was not excessively hot on a summer hike in 35+ degree weather. Whilst I generally try to keep total weight down below 11 kg, on a winter hike this season I packed 14 kg in this bag with no problems at all. I am both old (44) and light (64 kg), so I was pretty happy about this. I would absolutely buy this pack again: in fact if there was a 35 L version I'd buy another one for the wife right now! As light as we get here in Aus, comfortable, simple, strong enough Wish it came in a more camouflagued colour, would like another model in 35 L
