Rated4out of5byfromSolid PackThis 30L pack is a solid performer. I like the size and padding of the pack. It's easy to get into the main compartment and there are several pockets to store different gear. The material is tough enough to allow the pack to be used daily. I also like the tie off points that are on the pack for items to be stored on the outside. Overall I enjoy this pack for day hikes and for commuting to work and or the gym.

Rated4out of5byfromVery good backpack for the priceI use this pack for day hikes, but I plan to use it for short overnight trips as well. It is comfortable and easy to pack/carry, and it's a great deal for the price. My only complaints are 1) the lack of an organizer panel or pocket-- I would have liked the equivalent of what's in the Lookout 45 that my spouse has. However, in a relatively lightweight pack, this is a reasonable feature to omit. 2) the insufficient number of straps-- I'd like to be able to strap a sleeping bag/pad and trekking poles to the bag. So, in general, I like the pack as a day pack a lot, but if you're looking to use it for overnights, the Lookout is probably a better option.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat Backpack for Day HikesI just purchased this backpack for a hiking trip to glacier national park. We took several long day hikes and the pack was perfect for my needs. Not the most lightweight, but very conmfortable and a great fit.

Rated4out of5byfromGood pack for the moneyGood, pack just wish it it happen a little better organization to it. The top pocket could be a little large, doesn't fit much, the main pocket does hold a good amount. Slims down nicely when not much in it. Mostly got it for just day trips when i didn't need to cary much.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat BagI used this bag for a three day trip to Amsterdam. The bag worked great. I did not have any space issues. While in Amsterdam I walked around for a solid 8 hours with the bag and had no issues.

Rated4out of5byfromPleasantly SurprisedFelt it was the best bang for the buck price wise. Actually like that it only has three main pockets (not including the two small ones on the waist). Not overly cumbersome like some of my larger packs. Highly recommended.
