This pack works very well for long extended hiking trips. The longest I went was four days in the ADK's. It's not too great when it gets wet. I recommend a rain cover for sure. It has plenty of room for storage, and feels terrific on my back, no complaints there, which is basically a determinate factor for a succesful pack. I definitely recommend this pack for spring-fall hiking and camping.

This pack was comfortable and easy to organize. It has a seperate pocket in front of the middle opening that has small mesh pockers in it so it's really great for organizing small stuff. Had alot of padding and room, and seemed like it was a great pack. But, I haven't even had it for week, and haven't even taken it camping yet and it broke. One of the main screws holding a strap broke. The back would still be wearable it I was stuck in the woods, but even if this was a defect it doesn't say much for durability.
