I recently used this pack to set a new record/FKT on the 864 km Scottish National Trail, so I gave it two weeks of heavily 'accelerated' testing. Overall I love it for comfort, functionality, some really well considered features and value for money, but there's definitely room for improvement: * Sizing - I'm a 172 cm tall male, so slightly below average but not tiny. I had the shoulder straps tightened down as far as they go and still would've liked it smaller. Women in particular may find this pack is just too big. * Delicate mesh - this pack uses a stretchy mesh material on a number of pockets and, while it's handy for stashing gear, it just doesn't last like some of the competitors' meshes do. Almost every mesh panel/pocket already has small holes appearing from general wear and tear (though a rat chewing through one of the side pockets was unfortunate). * Small breast pockets - I love the running vest-inspired design to the pack, but would like way more room in the breast pockets. They can fit a phone or some snacks, but there's no way you're getting a water flask in there. * Weight - sure, 800 grams is pretty good, but I'd like to see it 100-200 grams lighter. The lid is completely unnecessary on a pack this small (and really fiddly) and a number of the straps could be simplified. Having said all this, I still think it's a great pack and will happily keep using it. I love the big waist side pockets (great for grabbing snacks and gear on the run), and the sternum straps are really easy to pop off. I'd just like to see Montane take it a bit further (and faster) in the next iteration.

Light as a feather, full of useful pockets externally and internally (including a useful sleeve inside the main compartment). 30 litres is a perfect size for a long day or a lightweight overnight.
