This pack is very light and compressible. It was no problem scrunching it up in the bottom of my backpacking pack for shorter day hikes. It can hold a fair amount of gear as the front pocket expands and the elastic lashing can also hold a fair amount. My 70oz hydration bladder easily fits inside the sleeve. I also like the hip belt which is supportive, comfortable and has side pockets keeping things like a headlight handy. Highly recommended.
The VO24 is one of three fast-and-light packs in GoLite’s Adrenaline Series (not just light, fast and light). The Adrenaline packs (Rush, VO24, and Lite-Speed) are designed for performance during fast-and-light sports like adventure racing and ultra-marathons, but with broad functionality. All are 3-liter hydration-compatible.
The VO24 is designed for day hiking, weekend adventure racing, and peak bagging. It features an adjustable webbing hip belt, two bellowed mesh pockets with zipper closures, two drain holes in the pack bottom, load control straps, tow loop, whistle on the adjustable sternum strap, rear bungee cord web with cord lock and hook to secure and attach gear, large front mesh pocket, haul loop, mesh back panel for breathability, two angled side mesh pockets, and a large front mesh pocket.
