The river trails had a lot of thick underbrush in some places. The
weather was generally mild or even warm during the day (unfortunately I do
not know what the temperatures where) and it didn't rain during the day on

I am not careful where I put the pack down, often rest on it while
strapped in, lean up against trees or rocks for support, sit on it at rest
stops and sometimes drag it along the ground a little when lifting it up.
[EDIT] I saw this the first time but failed to include it in my edit.
"kevlar" should be "Kevlar".
The stability of the pack along with the streamlined harness also makes it
easy to scramble over rocks and logs.
[COMMENT] In my frame of thinking today, I think this sounds better if
you change "makes" to "make". You are talking about two things? so "they
make", rather than "it makes". Your choice though, if you want to write
it off to "style" then that is fine.
That's it! That's the list!
