I like the multisport, but found its short profile and opportunity to lash stuff to the back causes it to drag your shoulders down when loaded up. It works with a "thin" profile, it doesn't work as well with a "fat" profile.

I haven't used the Multisport, but based on the pictures here and my experience with the Golite Dawn, it appears that the Multisport is basically a panel-loading Dawn with a better hipbelt. I'm sure there are other distinctions, but Ryans complaints about the profile of the Multisport more or less parallel my thoughts on the Dawn.

I've used both the Golite Multisport and the Salomon Raid Revo 30 and found the Salomon to trump the Golite in just about every conceivable way except the Salomon weighs in about 1 oz heavier.
