Make sure what exactly you will be using this pack for before you buy it. I bought this pack for a 5 day trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It was perfect for that (Camelbak, sunscreen, camera and phone).

I have now used it as my primary day hike pack, it works fine because I do not typically pack a lot of gear on a day hike. The last time I took it out I had my food for the day, my ENO hammock and water, even with the hammock it did the job, for how little it is I am always surprised how much you can fit into it. Mesh side pockets are the only downfall, if it is full of gear (I've had a few Nalgenes fall out while hiking).

Overall great day pack!
