This was my first pack ever. Prior to purchasing this pack, I used a daypack (probably about 20-25L) for day hikes, overnights, and even a few multi-day trips. Mind you, this was in sub tropical climate so I didn't need to pack much.
I've since started doing longer multi-day trips in colder climates and traveling so I invested in this pack.
First trip out, 5 day hike to Kalalau on Kaua'i and back. Something in the internal frame tweaked on the first day and the frame was warped, asymmetrical ever since. Sent back to Osprey through their repair service and they said it was not fixable and I am now looking for a replacement.
Functionality, fit were all good. The bag worked for me until it broke. But, it was very heavy relative to its capacity and other alternatives both by Osprey (e.g. Talon) and other mfgs.
Bottom line - I wouldn't buy it again but I haven't found a good replacement yet either.
