Rated5out of5bySome guy named AlexfromQuality day pack worth the moneyI use this pack for day hikes bc its small enough where its comfortable to carry but has just enough room to carry what u need for a day. I also use it for biking on occasion.
I love all the pockets and how they are distributed, very well thought out design. You have a cover included on the bottom of the pack in case of rain. It has a place to attach your helmet. My favorite thing about this pack is the design of the bladder. The bladder comes with a handle which makes it easy insert into the bag when full. It also comes with a magnet to attach the bite nozzle, rather then let it hang, very cool.

Rated4out of5byFonkeyfromLove itGreat pack, very well thought out. The only mistake I made was overfilling the hydration reservoir which resulted in a leak. The next time I didn't fill it up passed the hole and it was fine.

Rated5out of5byfiafiafromWorth the investment!I have used this pack for a year now on day hikes from 7 - 17 miles, and I love it. The biggest PROS for me are the air flow mesh, stability, adjustability, and the pockets on the waistband.
Whether it's fully packed or not the pack conforms well to my body, secures the contents and makes it easy to maneuver without having water or any of the contents sloshing around.
I can see how others will say it doesn't actually fit 25L. The pack has 1 large compartment, 2 medium(ish) ones on the sides, another small one on top, an open front pouch and 2 small waist pockets (not to mention 2 side pouches for bottles, or shoes, or other). If your gear is large, bulky or awkwardly shaped you'll probably have difficulty fitting it all in. But I like having several compartments! It makes it easy to find everything. It's also easy to attach items to the outside (light jacket). I haven't had any issues with space. In any case, I would recommend getting your hands on the pack first before you buy it.
The bite valve took me a bit to get used to, but not a big deal at all. The locking feature is great, I haven't had any issues with leaking.
Happy shopping! :)
