Bought this for a friend of mine; but I did a thoughtful research of all available options. This backpack is a beautiful bull. I say this because of aesthetic pleasing look and quality product that it is. First, about the product quality--- its a thin rip-off cloth with lots of precisely engineered pockets and compartment; for a novice each pocket maybe a mystery but for an experienced hiker this would be a treasure box of utility. Best part is unlike the symbium series this one is lighter yet strong design. Coming to the aesthetic aspects, sure the colour is girlish (according to contemporary norms) and the colour is what makes it out of league, usually backpacks of other companies do not yield this kind of combination of beauty and utility. Hence, I call this the beautiful bull.
Well made & comfortable to wear. Lots of pockets & different ways to use - separate compartments or one large space.
