I recently picked this pack up as a summer day pack and have been extremely pleased with it. The quality is top notch, and it fits like I am wearing a jacket. It took me awhile to adjust it, but I think I have it dialed in now. My only complaint is that there seems to be some overkill on the length of the straps (compression, waist, etc.) because they are always dangling. I know since this is a 'one-size-fits-all' day pack, that is one reason they may have the extra long straps. I have cut and melted several of the straps and that has solved my minor annoyances with the strap length. In general though, this pack seems pretty good and I expect it to last a LONG time!!!

The best pack money can buy. With the beaver tail pouch you can carry anything, I mean anything.

If you ever find yourself lying on top of your wrecked mountain bike 20 miles from nowhere and have to carry out your bike, just strap it in the beaver tail. Or if you're ever out quail hunting with your 80-pound bird-dog and he decides to get tangled in barbed-wire and you have to carry him out, just strap him on. I'm not kidding!

I have shredded nine dat packs (three of them military issue) but the hoodoo spire is indestructible, through the thickest bush you can imagine. The only daypack you will ever buy, (unless you buy unother one for you girlfriend).
