Am considering buying this pack for beginners backpacking. Has anyone used this pack? What are your pros and cons? I've read some articles, but wanted real people input. Thanks.:-?

I used a Circuit for 200 miles on the AT and some trips to Big Bend and Arkansas. Not a bad beginner pack but for the money I would go with something lighter. I gave mine to my brother and he uses it when he hikes with me. I traded up to a ULA P2 and find it to be more comfortable.

Other than that I hate bottom loading the sleeping bag and you have to take your pack off to reach the water bottles.
