" ...  It had plenty of room, and, more importantly, plenty of pockets for me to arrange my stuff (I'm mildly OCD, and need to have everything in its "right" place). ... All-in-all, this being my first Osprey bag, I can say that I am convert to the brand and will look to their stuff first when shopping for backpacks.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I used an older version of this Kestrel 48L bag and only "upgraded" because the original bag was a M/L and sized for someone w/ a longer spine. ... My favorite feature on the older model were the twin exterior side zip pockets that run from top to bottom on both sides. ... The newer version only has one of these- the other zipper opens the bag's main compartment for access to gear without unclipping the brain and unpacking the top . ... The bag already has a zipper on the bottom for access to the main compartment as well as the obvious top entry. ... That being said, it's still a fantastic bag. ... Also, the newer version includes an optional "shelf" in between the sleeping bag compartment and main compartment.  ...  "
