Review: Straps are well-padded and nicely shaped. The concave back was cool, although the padded section at the bottom did tend to create damp patches on the small of the back The X-ert dealt well with loads and it seemed well-built and quite tough, too. It has a great array of pockets, including a giant one in the lid, and the rain cover came in handy, too.
