I'll try to get one posted. Already unloaded the pack, though.
The shoulder straps are wider than other pack straps, but they are designed so as to be able to use spare socks, etc. as padding. I'd say they are not a "strong" plus of the pack, but in my initial wearing they didn't feel uncomfortable or out of place. For now, I've inserted the CCF pads that come with the pack. I'm unlikely to ever go the "unused clothing as padding" option.
Oh...and FWIW, the pack is a large with large hipbelt to suit my 6'5" body.
