REI Traverse 30 Pack - Special Buyis rated4.0out of5by3.
Rated2out of5byfromStarted good, strap didn't hold up.Decent daypack, comfortable, basic pack. The stitching on the shoulder strap came loose after a week of day hikes. Not sure if it a weak design or poor workmanship. Expensive pack if it only lasts a week or two.

Rated5out of5byfromgood packTook this pack on the Inca Trail. It rained on us everyday and the waterproof cover was easy to use and effective. Good size and comfortable.

Rated5out of5byfromVersatile backpack, excellent qualityI use this daily for road biking to work. I bike around 15 miles a day with this on my back. I bought it for long day hikes, but it works perfectly for biking. The shoulder pads, the back pads and the hip belt are very well padded and comfortable. It is very comfortable regardless of how much weight you're carrying. The pack is long and thin which is great for cycling. The two pockets on the top of the pack are useful, but don't plan on using both pockets on the back of the pack at the same time. Once one is full, the other is useless.
