I really love this pack! At first I was skeptical that 38L would be enough space as I had only used my first backpacking pack, the Osprey Ariel 55L, but it's totally fine, even for thru hiking where I need to store plenty of food. It's a great upgrade from the Osprey in that it's way lighter, though the Ariel was a great first pack.
I've hiking several hundred miles in that baby already, and so far there's minimal wear. It's also a pretty good size for ski touring!
One of the best features I think is that the hip belt is SUPER adjustable. I've a smaller person, so often I max out the hipbelt to the smallest size, but this one it's a non-issue.
