The Aventura's hydration system blew others out of the water: the reservoir's lid is easier to screw on and secure, and the hydration compartment's long L-shaped zipper makes the bladder a cinch to remove. We also liked the 24-liter pack's mesh pockets for stuffing layers and the shoulder straps that move side to side on small bars to customize the fit. 2.3 lbs.
