"I got this pack mainly for the hydration capabilities. I use a 2L bladder in it, and it fits fine. It can fit up to a 3L, though.
Shoulder straps are great. The belt, though, is a bit difficult to adjust.
The stitching on the PALS webbing is not good at all. I wasn't even utilizing them when the stitching started to come undone.
I used this pack on a 6-day outing. It held up to the abuse I gave it (e.g. kicking, dragging, carrying 20+ pounds etc.)
I wore a small hole in one of the smaller pouches, but that was probably because I put something sharp in that pocket.
The camo pattern has somewhat of a blue/grey tint, as with a lot of aftermarket digital UCP camo, but it's not too noticeable.
What I like about it is that it has carry handles on the top and two sides so that you could carry it horizontal if you had to.
All in all a great pack for the money. I love mine, even for it's flaws.
You could probably reinforce the webbing if you really need to."
