This is far and away the best daypack I've used. Everything I need fits for 10-20 mile hikes, both hot and cold weather.
Unlike another reviewer, I have no trouble carrying large water bottles in the mesh side pockets. Very comfortable in all conditions. The mesh back is particularly welcome in hot weather.

This is a great pack for day hiking. I used it in hikes up to 15 miles and was able to fit all I needed for the day, including water. Very comfortable, stable, light weight, and great back ventilation (thanks to the back mesh design).

This is my favorite day hiking bag.
