High quality...well thought out.

This pack combines technology, beauty and guts to provide a daypack that works. The aircomfort system cools you down while hiking (provided your shirt is thin enough) and the suspension system holds the pack securely in place. Amazing...a day pack with as advanced a suspension system as packs five times its capacity! Very rare! Plenty of pockets and attachment straps. Integrated rainfly is a great feature. Integrated pocket and attachment for hydration bladder is well appreciated.

My gripe is the overall size. The aircomfort springs take up a lot of space that could be used. Because of the aircomfort springs this pack is not very packable. You cant really stuff it away in a larger pack for extended trips...its simply too rigid. Also...and this is a small complaint...the top of the metal spring system can hit you in the neck when you are climbing or rock scrambling. this was a rare occurrence but I thought Id mention it because it does happen on occasion.

WOW! Well-thought-out technical daypack. Excellent suspension system. Built-in rain cover. Numerous well-designed compartments; counting the rain-cover pocket and hydration pocket, it has six pockets. easily holds a 2-liter bladder. even pleasant to look at. Terrific value for the money. I think this one's going to become a long-lived friend :-)
