It looks like a good pack,
What I don't like:
the price is pretty high compared to what i spent, now that might be because this one is just a better pack, or because of what it is made of..i dunno...
From the pic it looks like a top loader, and I am not a fan, I like the front loaders, ya know like a suitcase style, easyier access to your cloths/gear.
What I do like:
Floating lid features a large top pocket with a zippered internal pocket to keep your valuables secure
Front mesh pouch with bungee compression system is ideal for carrying wet items; remove pouch, and webbing straps let you use it as a daypack
Inside the back of the pack is a sleeve to house a hydration reservoir
Ultimatly the pick will be yours, these are only my opinions...you will have to go and test it out to make sure its the pack for you..its like buying a car. make sure it has everything you want, and the things you don't want are not costing you more...
