    'My other question would be how do you keep track of the small items, like pocket knife, lighter, toothbrush, currently I keep that stuff in the brain of the pack I use. I guess I will have to see how it all fits in.'

    Recently, I bought a special portable toothbrush case with sunitizing effect. so, now it takes more space.

    I have been wearing the pack on day hikes and figuring out what I like and don't like. So I have removed the Lumbar pad, did not like the way it fit. Now I ordered the water bottle pouch and I will be removing the Aqua clip. The pack is comfortable.

    Personally, I don't carry a knife anymore, lighter is in my cook pot and an extra in my F.A.K. Toothbrush is in my F.A.K. as that is also where I store floss and such.
    I use the hipbelt pouches on mine as I like having my keys, tissue and chapstick in one side and my headlamp and pepper spray in the other.

    I used to live and die by my pack brain. I definitely probably overloaded it (weight-wise) from time to time. Now that I have my Ohm 2.0, I do not miss it in the slightest.
    By the time I took off my pack, unzipped the brain and found what I was looking for, I could have taken off my pack, opened the top of the pack, and found what I was looking for. Not having a brain allows me to arrange weight in my pack better at really no cost. As others have said, I find my hipbelt pockets to be much more useful for small items (phone, map, etc.)
