Used this pack for the southern 1,000 miles of the Appalachian Trail (2005). Aside from occasional overnights it sat in my closet for a few years before that. Held up well, except for a blow-out along the seam on the shoulder strap where I pick the pack up from (and holy crap does it smell!). In the hot southern summer, it was fine for carrying what little gear I needed. Only strapped gear on the outside when I had five days of food inside. Lasted longer than most small packs I saw, but definately weighed more. Now that it's been trashed, I am considering a Bora 50.
