Mountainsmith does it again!
I purchased the Falcon 55 as a replacement for a Mountainsmith pack which I have had for around 6-7 years. I believe the model is a called the Caldera. I have not field tested my Falcon 55 but it appears to be light weight and sturdy with a composite frame that provides strength yet remains light weight. The Falcon 55 can be used as a day pack or a full on trekking pack given that it can expand. Basically this pack looks to be a good backpack for the its price and ability.
