Mountain Hardwear Dihedral 2008

This rucksack comes in 45 litre (S) and 52 litres (M); padded back system; padded hipbelt; wand pockets; side compression straps; one main compartment with snow-lock extension; extending lid; extremely durable fabrics; hydration system-compatible. But 1870g (size M) is extremely heavy; others are lighter with more airflow; not many pockets; lid can float forward to allow water in.
Verdict
An exceptionally durable rucksack, but its weight may be a drawback.
