Interesting mix of reviews on that bag at the Aero site. I've never seen one in person... One thing I didn't notice was whether it had an integrated water bladder system (or accommodation for same). The more I think about it, the more I'm interested in a webgear style system. I came across a tactical pack in one of our catalogs at work that I may inquire about. Of course, it costs 3x what it should because it's for public safety.
