The pack has 2 sets of dual side cinches, that do a great job of balancing the load depending on the current capacity that you are carrying. I do wish that there was some sort of strap that went across the middle front of the pack, so that you could carry a jacket or anything else on the outside? I am not exactly sure what the small nylon strap that goes across the lower pocket is for (rear night light I presume?), but it worked great for carrying my cutters that I use regularly for trail maintenance.
An exceptional feature is the padded lifting strap, which helps you grab the pack with your entire hand. It has turned out to be a simple functional touch to the pack, which has added immense usefulness and just makes it a darn pleasure grabbing the pack to do anything with it.
Like any of the medium to large packs, it has a lot of pockets. It has the usual couple of front pockets that have the typical functionality, although I wish the key clip was in the lower front pocket instead of the upper? It has two nice side pockets that are made with some elastic material, so it allows you to add larger objects than seems feasible for their size. In the inside front panel are 2 zippered pockets and a nice Velcro pocket that is perfect for a wallet.
