Rated4out of5bykgagne3fromGreat for a day tripI bought this backpack as my daily pack. The comments and reviews suggested it would be good, which is accurate to a certain extent. The interior doesn't have a 'sleeve' to put things like an iPad or Laptop and keep it protected from things like a charger, or keys. The back support, shoulder and waist straps are awesome, some of the best i've found (and i'm a backpack enthusiast). The external pocket is more useful then i first though, and the pockets on the sides are great, and the ones on the waist strap are a pleasant surprise. The straps get in the way when they are not in use, a little annoying, but manageable. All in all, i would recommend this pack to anyone interested in day hikes and around town trips, as for an over nighter, you'd need something with more space.

Rated3out of5bySkiattlefromReally wanted to like it.I needed a new pack for day hikes. This seemed perfect. Loved the pockets and the construction. Loved how light it was. But if didn't offer enough internal structure to provide the stability and weight distribution that I was looking for to carry 15-20lbs. It would make a great pack for some, but it felt like it was geared more towards long distance runners than hikers.
