I love this pack! Light and strong, it carries really well. The hip-belt has useful gear-loops and is very good; however, the great thing is that it is removable, which I found great for multi-pitch climbs. There is also a useful inner pocket which "floats", great for money, keys, phone, etc. The only disadvantage is that you have to open 4 buckles to get into the pack (if the top compression straps are done up). I have found the low-profile ice tool holders useful, too.

I have been using this pack for about a year now and love it. It is very light and carrys a heavy load well. The roll top takes some getting used to but the compression straps over it allow you to strap on all kinds of stuff (like a rope). Gear loops on the nice thick waist belt are nifty. There are plenty of ways to lash stuff to the outside as well. The fabric seems bomb proof and the badding is plush yet firm.
