Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I don't always write reviews, but wanted to share my experience regarding this product.
I originally purchased this pack to replace my GoRuck GR1 with a more commuter-bike friendly waterproof pack. I bike to work (about 15 miles round-trip) and use a backpack to carry work clothes, MacBook Air, small camera, and my lunch.
After using this pack a couple times, I decided to return it to SAC. For how bulky this pack is, it's way smaller than I expected. Not only did I have difficulty packing what few items I had, when I did managed to fit every thing in, it was super uncomfortable on my back. If you are using this pack to carry a laptop, and maybe a couple books, I think it would be perfect, especially in humid/wet climates! Anything more than that, consider a larger model or different style pack.
Very solid construction
Straps are comfortable
Smaller than expected
Uncomfortable on your back
