I'll call SG on monday and ask if this one has an internal frame, but I've looked at the same pack on several sites and none of them mentioned a frame, so I'm thinking it doesn't. Guess I'll have to suck it up and shell out the dough fer one o them classy packs .
Your pack looks top notch, mrm14, but it's a wee bit out of my price range *shrug*. C'est la vie.

I'm in the same situation as Dag, that is WAY out of my price range, and it doesn't come in natural colors. I want something that has low visibility. Either camouflage or earthy colors. It's not so much an expedition pack for me, but a survival pack.

Only comes in one pattern, and looks a little small. I'd like to at least know I can pack about 65 if i get a hair up my @$$ and want to.

How about running with a pack? I've started running again, and I'd like to throw a bag on my back and intensify the workout. Would a frameless pack be better to run with?

I was asking the experts on that one, but according to the website, it has a 4500 cubic inch capacity...

YES!

I can run quite well with that Osprey Aether 70 pack cause my balance is natural as it would be without a pack on.
