Another thing I noticed that hasn't been mentioned so far, but can be seen in Yukon's great pictures if you look close, is the end caps have almost mini-hammocks in them. The great part of this is you can put a 2 liter soda bottle in them and it stays put. This is fantastic, in my BMBH anything not in a stuff sack or mesh peak bag ended up on top of me.
yes, the end caps are made baggy/loose so they can be used as extra storage, the one at the head end is often useful for putting your arms back behind your head if you want to
