Anytime guys. The bag is definitely comparable to the higher end bags. And iron you are right, it is a pretty big bag, but my personal thoughts are that I'd rather have a bag that's too big for me (now) than one that I eventually have to replace because its too small. And with the gazillion pockets & dividers this thing has, even if you don't fill it up, you can still ensure that your gear doesn't flop around inside the bag.
I'd looked at some of the other popular bags around this price range (Unkle Mikes, Browning, etc) and this one just blows them all away. Its probably twice the size with at least twice the features, if not more. Definitely can't go wrong with this bag.
Glad I could help by sharing a great deal! :)
