Surprisingly versatile. I've used this pack for everything…

Summary

Surprisingly versatile.

Pros

  • Weight

I've used this pack for everything from hiking 14,000 foot mountains to commuting to work on a bike. 

This is the lightest and most minimal of day packs that I have been able to find. That perk is not gained in sacrificing comfort, durability or functionality..

The pack distributes based on your loading preferences, as always. The internal hydration sleeve is handy but I found that the backpack loses form in using one. Better, are the two elastic side panels, perfect for 1-1.5L bottles. That balances the weight and is typically enough for the longest of day hikes. 

The simple, sleek design also serves well for bike riding and even trail-running. 

The adjustable waist and shoulder straps help form the storage garment to your back for minimal interference of movement or balance.

Durable, easy-drying design.. 

Cheers, Mountainsmith!
