That's a great little pack. I have one (blue/black) and use it regularly. It's well made and fits more than you expect. Has mesh pockets on both sides plus at the front, as well as a front zippered pocket. You can also attach Lowepro or Tamrac pouches to the slots on either side of the bag. The backpack straps could be wider, however, and it lacks a waist strap too. But overall it's a useful little bag. It is a discontinued model hence the sale.

Would this hold up to a light rain?

*update: bought one anyway... seems like a great deal!

Mine has. The zippers are protected from light rain by a little overhang, as you can see here:

I wouldn't take it out for a full day in a tropical monsoon, but for walkabout purposes the level of light rain protection seems OK.

While I don't have this exact model, I do have two Tamrac backpacks. I'm extremely impressed with the quality of them throughout! Can't go wrong with one of these.

That's a shame - still says "closeout" however.....
