This has been my sole pack for the last two years and I've since moved on. Photos below are all I have on the computer right now. I can take pictures of the pack in it's current condition. It's aged well and looks every bit as good as it did when I received it thanks to the Cordura, save for regular wear and scuffs and what appears to be paint blotches from a jobsite under the lid. Not sure what it is, but it doesn't affect how the pack functions.
Chris Zimmer built this simple pack for me as a custom job. The design is basically a clone of the Topo-Designs "Klettersack", but with a few added touches to make it function well in the mountains as a multi-day pack or daypack, with or without a hipbelt depending on load needs. This pack also works well on the bike without the hipbelt attached.
I have a ULA Circuit hipbelt that slips through and attaches with burly velcro to a pass-through on the lower lumbar portion of the pack. The hipbelt attachment isn't "wimpy" in any way. Dual side compression straps on the sides and a single zip pocket on the top lid. Synthetic 4-way lash tabs on the rear are good for attaching additional gear in multiple configurations. Bright orange pack liner helps make finding objects in pack easier, so I've heard- honestly, it just looks cool. Shoulder straps use 3D spacer mesh, the standard material and straps Zimmerbuilt uses on all his packs. I had him add a single D- ring to each strap. No pockets on the interior of the pack. No side pockets. No load lifters. Pretty straight forward ruck.
