I bought the Gregory Pallisades because it was the only Harness that would not result in pressure spots on my left shoulder and feel comfortable for a whole trip. Load wise, It accommodates everything I need in a pack. That being said, I'm watching the harness carefully, because the stress points on the shoulder strap attachments marry/rivet a nylon plastic hinge joint to a metal frame and I would have preferred to see lightweight metal fastener joints there. Likewise down on the hip-belt attachment it's the same type of nylon/plastic joint. Zippers also tend to catch and get caught but not a big issue. The rest of the bag is designed very well and super comfortable.
