Pretty good daypack. I like the internal organization; lined sunglass compartment, hydration sleeve, and 2 other internal compartments.

My only real knocks on it are the lack of pockets on the hipbelt and the padding on the back. They're really minor gripes, I've just gotten used to the mesh backing and hipbelt pockets on my Osprey Atmos 65. But hey, for under $30 including shipping (and that was brand new with tags!) I can't complain.

Overall a very capable pack that I would recommend without reservation. Oh yeah, Einstein fits on it with no problem! (See my profile for an explanation)
