I just got one in the mail. Looking ahead to retiring on Friday and heading out to the Pasayten soon.

Anyone have experience with this pack? Any idiosyncracies to think about?

I have an early version of this pack.  Mostly the same.  Purchased 5 or 7 years ago?   It's my go- to pack.  While the spec says something like "for trail use", I use this pack for mostly off trail.  I've had to do some light sewing repair, as you might expect for off trail use.  I would say, it works great for me.  I'm usually out for an average of 4 days with a total weight of 25lbs.

I had one.  It was plenty light, durable, and versatile, but I just never got it to fit me well, so I stopped using it after a few outings.

I loaded up 25 pounds of gear in the pack and took a dayhike along the Skykine Divide with friends yesterday. Felt great. I'll be carrying about 10 pounds more than that into the Pasayten soon, and think that weight should work well.
