It's a great backpack! I was very surprised at the very colorful [girly] inside patterns considering how dark the exterior is. All the extra clasps are great I haven't yet taken it out on the slopes but I took it on the trails and it held my eno hammock, extra clothes, my 3L bladder, snacks camera and dog treats/bowls. Definitely very roomy while still slender. The should straps are lightly padded and feel great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
