Super light- as light as my buddies carbon, or lighter.
Super comfy- seems true to size
The buckle strap may not be as strong as a friction loop thing, but it's 10x's easier. pretty rare that i'll crash and test the buckle strength though.

This is pretty slick.
Soft and conforming you can put it pretty much anywhere.
i've squeezed the heck out of it to see how tight the valve is with no leaks at all.
super easy to operate.
i wish it came with a hang strap or caribiner for hanging it- gotta make your own.
not sure about cleaning it yet...fill with hot soapy water and swish i guess...
Update: you can use soapy water or denture cleaners on this, but I couldn't really ever get it to dry. worries about mildew. might be worth just freezing it in between uses.

Not bad, but not perfect.
I like the "waterproof" material and zippers. aside from being submerged in water, i think it's true.
i wish the main pocket opened up more- hard to see the pile of stuff at the bottom; have to go by feel.
the little mesh pocket inside is great, right at the top and visible.
it's pretty comfy and stable- better than my 4 year old camelbak mule.
I wish the side pockets came around my hips more so they could not only take more of the pack weight, but also be easier to access. And I have a 31" waist so if you're heftier they'll be further behind you.
Finally, I wish the side pockets had zippers or buttons or something. I've put my phone in during an enduro mtb ride without issues, but it's not very reassuring.
and i think i like platypus bladders more than cbaks. easier to fill and clean with the top mouth opening.
