At £140 I recon this pack provides the best bang for buck out there, at £95 for the 2019 model it is just amazing value. I've never had an issue with the lumbar pad or the shoulder straps with up to 13kgs. With my current base weight I can't see me ever carrying over 10kgs and at these weights I don't think it will be an issue. They rate it max load limit 20kgs and at that weight I reckon any pack would make you miserable after 15 miles. Looks like they have sold out at £95.
