Osprey Manta versus Mystery Ranch Coulee 25

Time to replace the day pack.
After extensive internet searching I narrowed it down to those two. I found lots of stores that carry the Manta for an in-store trial -- add some weight and wear it while wandering around the store. but none for the Mystery Ranch. I have tried every MR dealer within 100 miles and not one had it in stock. I am hesitant to buy anything based solely on manufacturer web site claims and you tube reviews. The you tube reviews make it sound good, but...

I like MR's ruggedness as I am rough on packs. I like Osprey's suspension system.

Anyone try the MR Coulee 25?
