Dana  Designs Glacier was reviewed in Backpacker last month.
I also have one. It is a great pack, but > 5 pounds. It carries lots of
(for those who still do that), has great pockets, etc..
Down side... When loaded, it caused some Lumbar  issues (in the review, and
on my trip). Hip belt is stiff.

I have a Dana Design Shadow peak (day & a half pack) that I am trying now
(2350ci), I'll keep you posted.
