Mountain Hardwear PCT 55 L Pack - Men's
First Look: This New Mountain Hardwear Pack Blends Support and Breathability
Thanks to the hipbelt design, our load remained centered and the PCT moved with us no matter how we stepped. With minimal pack sway, we finished the hike in comfort. The next hikes—two laps grunting up Jackson’s local ski hill, Snow King, and a 15-mile adventure in the Gros Ventre Range—confirmed the PCT’s ability to handle 50-pound loads without restricting movement or leaving our shoulders sore

Recommendations for 30-35l backpack for motorcycle commute and light travel
The bag feels durable, the laptop/admin section are great, and I like that it all is in one section rather than separated like the Patagonia. I do have a Patagonia Black Hole Duffel, and while I like how durable it feels, the shoulder straps and harness system are trash in comparison to the Osprey Transporter duffel.
