Incredibly versatile pack. I ordered this in early spring last year, needing a reliable daypack. I found myself using it for quick runs to the closest local wildernesses and watersheds for weekend outings and hikes.
I couldn't have asked for a better size pack, allowing ample space while preventing unneeded junk, just enough to quench my aspiring ultralight mentality. It is quite comfortable with its solid internal frame and backpanel padding. the two side pockets are great and roomy for any extras you may have forgotten. Also, the compression straps are convenient, and several attachments allow last minute tie-ons.
Only one minor complaint would be the small zipper stability, which I can overlook due to its great value and numerous other commendable assets. I'm currently using the pack to haul all my heavy textbooks to class.
I am overall extremely satisfied with this pack's performance.
