First, enough proselytizing; everybody has a prophet they want to advocate for, geeze ;-)
In all seriousness, fantastic pack. I got someone to custom add a cuben hip belt which makes it a good snug ride and helped with the 25 lb max load I carried for a wilderness trek last summer. I had to fiddle with the fit a good deal at that weight, but it worked out. I kept my paty bladder in the top, which may not have helped the fit, and used a hose, using the sides for general items.
Compression I find to be excellent, as is construction.
