    About 4,000 miles with a 3400, I can reach the pockets easily and they are huge. On the PCT I easily fit five liters in the side pockets, a 1.5 and 1 liter Smartwater in each side.

    I went with the 20D on my new Revelation, I'll have to let you know what I think in about seven months. I figured for a whopping two ounces I'll take the increased durability.
