Some of the qualms expressed in this review are a bit contradictory. While overall I agree with the review and think that this pack has potential but isn't quite there yet, wishing for it to be lighter yet having a larger front pocket and more accessories is a bit odd. I mean, sure, we all would love that, but the fact is you can't really have both.
Further, I agree with the issue about the main opening being less than easy to use, but it should be noted that this pack's primary function is as a compression sack. If looked at in this particular light, the one the designers intended, it works pretty well. It just so happens it also makes a passable ultralight pack. :)
