A great overall backpack. I like the APS system. It brings the shoulder bands almost to the centre of your back, which is nice for the not so wide shouldered people. The waistband is superbe. It is not completely vertical, but a bit cone shaped, so that it rests ON your hips, instead of only around them. (the lower back piece is not square, but triangular shaped, which causes this) I think this might be great for women too. For me, having bony hips, it is a relief, since I don't have to strain the waist band too much.

The rest of the pack is a no nonsense bag, without much gizmos. Easily to compress, with 2 compartiments and a floating top. I use it for weekends out into the rocks (kinda on the big side for this if the weather is good and bouldering, but for sport trips it is OK) for longer camping/trekking/travelling trips (10-20 days) it's just perfect. I like the fact that it doesn't have too much pockets and other rings and gizmo's, because this saves weight, and makes a bag often too complex. The things, which the bag has, are useful to me.

(I don't know for sure... I have the cerro tore, but I think it is an other model (older/newer) than the one mentioned above. The features I mentioned are the same, but there is no map compartiment and the mesh wire in the front is also not there. The rest is teh same as in the description)
