I'm a 6'2" 200lb. guy and this is my favorite pack! It's big enough for everything but a sleeping bag!
I hike and climb A LOT and I really NEVER leave home without this pack. I usually throw this bag in the back of my car when we go on a trip in case I need a day-pack of light overnight. I often find myself setting aside my Slider and Momentum II to use this one.
Words fail to portray how well it rides! It will carry 2 days & nights worth of gear if you pack light and arrange like a Tetris master!

An excellent backpack for youth or small adults. I am a small woman and have found that this backpack works very nicely on short or several days trips. It's big enough for whatever I need, but small enough that I don't overload it. Extremely comfortable to carry.
My only complaints are that the water system drips between the tube and the mouth piece (but simply hooking it higher than the pouch fixes this), and that it's hard to hook thing onto the outside of the pack.
