I like the pack, I think for its weight, durability and pretty high price its worth its value. Not to many folks would dare ruck a 9 pound burly pack, but I have enjoyed, I have carried enormous loads on the pack, you could consider them luxuries on the back country, but I have never been one of the ultralight converters. I always believed carry the essentials, and if you can carry a few items of luxuries, well, you be the envy at campsite, and luxuries are far in between when you got some folks spending the night out in the woods missing a good night sleep or passing hunger, or worse.. Is not for everyone, and the price can be a tough pill to swallow, and one that you have to maximize its utilities and productivity. I have gone camping, hiking, hunting, and I have found the pack to perform very well under intense loads. I have seen popular brand packs rip, torn under just a few trips, whether these trips are intense bushwhacking, or light trekking, and I told myself: well dammit, if I'm gonna buy a pack, is going to be once and once only. That's my philosophy behind all my purchases, ergo the high tag price. I'm 5'9". 176lbs. Medium Yoke, Medium Belt. I think the Daypack Lid is a must get. The manufacturer's claims are right on the money. If you do a bit digging I have post some other details on the pack a few post pack on the Mystery Ranch Collection thread among others. I can carry three days worth of equipment, which might include few luxuries such as a Surface Pro or Goal Zero 100 Sherpa Battery, 6L Dromedary Bladder full of water (My poor back, this was before I got hold of the MSR Guardian Water Filter, also not the lightest of items some might consider, but worth it in my opinion, let's face it, a working self cleaning filter is GOLD). You add the Daypack lid, and you got more storage options, not to mention, a small pack to carry around if one desires to trek out there while you leave the Overload at base. Now I have seen a few on Ebay, some I regret not buying, AGAIN, but I'm pretty pleased with my original purchase. There was one that had MSOAB quick release yoke, which I have tried to purchase from MR, but it wasn't sold to civilians unless you had direct contract. I saw it on ebay a few days ago like new, and it was gone as soon as I tried to snipe it. There was also a foliage version with some blood and wear on it, but I thought the price a bit to high for an already worn and some mileage pack, but again, I slept on it. I seen the new versions, I await further time if they're worth upgrading.
