The biggest positive to this pack for me is the adjustable frame. This is a feature you don't often see on backpacks of this size. It really allows the pack to hug my back and shoulders in a way that a standard frame just doesn't. I was very happy to see that in black, the MOLLE straps are barely noticeable in person and this pack doesn't give off that mall-ninja/tacticool vibe that I feel like some of the competitors have. The tri-zip design is fantastic and is a significant improvement over traditional designs or even clamshell. The water bottle pockets are excellent and snugly hold my 40oz hydroflask and 50oz camelback chute without issue.
I wish this pack came with better strap management. The compression straps and shoulder straps have alot of excess flapping unless you get an aftermarket solution. Fortunately, the MOLLE webbing means that you have alot of options to secure them. I purchased this pack to be a hiking daypack and a laptop EDC. For those purposes I'm not sure you will find a better solution. For travel, there are much better options.
Finally let me buy Myatery ranch.
I have always paid attention to the backpack of Mystery ranch. The price of the 3 Day style is high, which makes it impossible for me to buy it. Here I find a preferential price, which makes me start with the backpack I dream of.
