I was sucked in by all the neat gadgets and ended up selling mine in 
disgust.  Aside from all the stuff to go wrong mechanically (I have the 
old suspension, before they simplified it with the measuring tape, and 
counted 20 buckles to adjust in the suspension), I just couldn't get the 
hip belt to fit me (and I worked in outdoor retail, fitting packs for a 
living).  I found this with a number of people, the mountainsmith 
hipbelts just wouldn't  fit right.  I have since got a Gregory and am 
pretty happy with it (I have only use it for a week or so on the trail so 
far, but I'm hopefully taking it out this weekend).

Also, be warned that they are _very_ slow with warentee service.

They are good for some, but many people just can't get a good fit.
