    Burton Premium

    Anyone have thoughts on this? It looks pretty nice, but I'd like to hear some reviews on it.

    Never heard of it, but from the photo, it looks like it doesn't have side compression straps. Depending on what you plan to carry, compression straps might be helpful to compress the load closer to your back. This way, the main bulk (or centre of mass) of your load is close to your body's centre of mass and more comfortable to carry. Otherwise, it'll feel like something's hanging off your back and dragging you down.

    Actually, they both look crappy, but SolidGun's suggestion looks to be more practical. ;)
