Yes I considered buying this pack also, it looks very nice. I ended up ordering one of the Badlands Monsters instead, I have a Badlands Super Day and I love it so I thought I would just go with Badlands again.
The Monster has a similar shoulder yoke system, but is more of a lumbar pack and it wraps around the waist a bit more. It is also a bit smaller at 1100 cubic inches. It is quite comfortable and adjustable, and has more than enough room to carry your needs for a day afield.
I think the Ascent 14 would also be a great choice though, I don't think you could go wrong with getting it.
