It is rather like a school rucksack, but it can very well handle much more than just school material. It has a fairly decent volume, 35 lt. Lower part, similar to big packs' sleeping bag compartment, has a separate zipper which can easily be reached from outside.

Of course, the inside of the bag, can be partitioned with a zipped divider. It has two huge side pockets which can easliy accomodate 32 oz Nalgene bottles placed inside the insulated bottle carriers. It does not have a top flap. Instead, a top zipper allows users to conveniently open and close the bag. A belt buckle and the stabilizers secure the pack on your back securely.

You can compress the volume, using two compression straps on either side. Back system is well padded. It does not have a rainfly. It's a handicap because the fabric, although ripstop, is prone to getting severely wet under serious rain. It has one ice-axe loop and two other smaller loops which to date I could not undestand what exactly they were intended for.

I take this bag when it's time to hit the track for summit. Overall, I am very satisfied with its performance and recommend it.
