If you really like the way the pack fits, that is worth a lot, to me, anyway.
I shopped for a pack a long time, and bought that exact pack in 2007, because it fit great, and boy scout packing sometimes demands a big pack. I knew the weight wasn't light, but the fit was fantastic. No regrets, I trimmed out what weight I could, like you cut off straps, no lid, etc. Weighs right around 4#, and I love it.
Would I use it for a thru hike, no way. But fit is important, and I had problems finding one that was as good, along with a lot lighter.
