I loved my Solaris, but unfortunately after 3 years, the shoulder straps were starting to wear so I picked-up a Terra 45, which had shoulder strap issues within 2 days. I then decide that an adjustable shoulder strap harness would probably be a step up. So I bought myself an Osprey Kestral 48 and could not be more pleased. Not only does it qualify as a carry-on, but it has zippered side pockets like my Solaris. Also, there are so many other features along with the adjustable harness, which improved the load distribution to where it feels as if I am carrying half the weight, that I will probably continue putting my trust in Kestral products.
