The Crestone II is my first "real" pack, although I have borrowed a
couple over the years. I have been very happy with it so far, mostly
because I bought it because I liked the feel, and that is the most
important factor in any pack purchase. I thought it was a good deal for
the money- I paid about $250. As far as I am concerned, it has a lot
of extra strapping (much to relieve stress on the zipper and to attach
the stuff pocket to the pack), which many purists
would feel unnecessary (at least for a full top-loader), but it still
comes in at a good weight for it's size. There is no shortage of
places to stuff things and attach to the pack.
If I had one complaint, it is that the waist belt seems to loosen
a bit after a while on the trail, and I have to retighten it. I am not
sure how common this is in other packs.
Cannot speak to durability since I picked it up just last summer.
