Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I originallt bought the 30L version of this pack for the Telluride to Moab San Juan Hut trip. Upon delivery I decided that it was a bit too big and returned it for the Blackline 20l. The pack was great! Plenty of room for everything I needed on our 7day 6 night journey. The pack stayed secure on my back. The tool pocket proved to be perfect keeping all my tools organized and easily accessible. On day 6 we had to ride up John Brown canyon in the rain and the packable rain cover worked flawlessly. The pack is capable of carrying both a full face and xc helmet, though I rarely used this feature. Upon descending into the Pircupine Rim temps climbed to 100 and the well ventilated back panel and waist belt kept me as cool as one could expect in the desert heat. I would highly recommend this pack.
