I cannot say enough good things about this pack. I bought it about four years ago because I needed a backpack for school that could double as an overnight bag. It has surpassed my expectations and then some.
It is incredibly durable, has a very creative design, and is very comfortable. The elastic around the water bottle pockets keeps the size small for daily activities, but if you need to stuff the pack to capacity it expands greatly. It's really a great happy-medium between a school bag and a smaller fully-functional hiking daypack. With a bit of trimming down of my gear, I managed to use only this pack for a two-night backpacking trip in the Adirondacks.
I use this pack daily, to bring to work, school, to friends' houses, for weekend trips to family, or into the woods. For being used nearly every day for over four years the pack is holding up like a workhorse.
