Love, love, LOVE this backpack! I did a lot of research before settling on the Gregory-brand and, finally, the Baltoro 65. The fit is amazing, and the suspension system is designed to move as you do so there isnt any bunching of your clothes underneath nor any hot spots from the padding rubbing against your body. I cannot believe the amount of room available in this pack! With a separate lower section for your sleeping bag and, most likely, your tent as well depending upon the size of your gear, you still have a lot of room in the main compartment which CAN be made into one large single compartment with the lower sleeping bag section by removing a couple of straps, if you prefer. I am amazed at how the bag just seems to keep fitting stuff! You can just keep piling everything on top and it will still fit securely and be covered. The only initial drawback for me was the various straps that secure the bag. When I unsnapped the buckles, it took me a while to figure out what went to what at first. It left me thinking, whats the deal with so many straps? But, after only a couple of times securing everything it all made sense and the additional straps help secure everything inside the bag nicely and also provides a means to strap gear to the outside of the bag as well. Again, awesome bag, great purchase, worthy of 5-stars and Id buy it again in a heartbeat.
