Hey, I've got one! Weighs a ton, but is one of the few packs that is (relatively) comfortable around the hips for me. I'll take comfort any day. Also, you can pack a ton of stuff into it without having to tie your whole life onto the outside (I hate having stuff hanging off my pack, particularly when I'm scrambling off-trail).

Thinking I should really try something lighter, on the recommendation of several people I recently got an Osprey Atmos. Cannot stand the thing. Uncomfortable and has an inane design. Also, there's something cool about wearing a pack named after a prehistoric bird (which I'm sure could rip an osprey to shreds). :)

I've got an older model Bora 90 and yes, it's a monster. Gotta get a lighter pack soon.

Well the consensus is that while it is heavy it is a "Bomb proof" pack. I have looked at the lighter packs and I just can't find anything quite as comfortable. If anything, this pack makes you look for ways to cut the weight. I am always willing to try most anything in that regard but draw the line on cutting toothbrush handles.
Better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it!
