I bought this pack because I live in Washington (yes, it rains quite a bit here) so the waterproof feature is a quasi necessity. There are a couple of items I want to contradict about the 'Features' listed above. There is no 'Divider between the main and sleeping bag compartments - rather you have one large compartment. I like this feature as I can arrange my belongings as I deem fit with no extra wasted space. Second, there are no water bottle holsters found on the bag. The bag design is clean and simple. The Hydration sleeve is huge. I use it as a waterproof internal compartment (my whiskey needs a home as well) and then add my bladder on top. The bag carries 40 lbs quite easily. The back panel automatically adjusts to the wearer's needs/size. That is a pretty slick feature.
