Likes: The size. I originally purchased a backpack from REI that was too small for overnight camping. I'm keeping that bag for day hikes and using the Gregory pack for longer hikes and overnight stays. Backcountry Edge had the best price and I received the shipment in a few days.
Dislikes: There isn't anything I don't like about this produce.
