no issues with mine.  i did get longer shoulder straps for it, and removed hip belt.  wouldnt use it for a drag bag though.  dont load up the top pouch with heavy stuff or it will swing.  a carbine with short buttstock just barely sticks out.  usually i carry a shotgun in it when climbing/rappelling, in case a run into a grizzly.

Big +1 on the top pouch swinging.  I might see about getting some straps added to be able to cinch the top pouch down and eliminate this.  It's a quality pack, and Glen Eberle himself answered the phone when I ordered mine.  Even asked if he could call me back because he was in the middle of backing up a trailer.  

As with Squad Leader, some longer shoulder straps might be in order if you're tall.  I'm 6'3", and it makes me feel a little scrunched if I'm using the hip belt.  I thought the hydration bladder that comes with it (100 oz) is good quality as well.

I like mine alot and agree 100% with what both users have already said. I put two 70oz bladders in mine due to the pockets being only 5" wide.
