I have the 12lt version an am surprised looking at the video. Purchased 2 years ago and is better than what is in the video - bladder is included, hard flasks get smoothly to the front pockets, the pockets do have draw cord included. But my model didnt come with soft flasks. I use the extra 7lt for storage of jumper, forever raincoat, etc. Yes, it is expensive, but it is the best of breed.
