I would like to hear from some users/owners of the new 2013 Icon packs. Looking at the KUIU web site, they seem to be excellent packs based on all the info and descriptions, but real world reviews carry more credibility.

It would be good to hear about 1) load carrying ability/comfort 2) frame/suspension functionality and durabilty
3) pack fabric durability 3) accessabililty / organization (pockets/zippers) 4) waist belt functionality and comfort 5) how well does it compress down to day pack mode?

I know there are other outstanding packs available. With most of them there is already quite a bit of info and reviews on them. Not so with the new 2013 Icon Packs. Please keep replys limited to Icon packs.

Thanks
