Used an MR Pintler for the first time in 2018, fit and comfort level are great and the bag was a perfect size for day hunts. It made heavy loads more stable an less taxing plus the easy overload design was nice to use versus having to completely remove a pack to use the frame as a load hauler. The zippers are the best ones I've experienced compared with lesser packs. I'm sure the other alpha-level packs are equally great but I think MR is right in the hunt.
