Rated3out of5byDebo and BellafromComfortable but has space issuesReally takes the pressure off my shoulders and back, which is great (and the reason I purchased the pack). However, it doesn't have a lot of capacity and the space is shaped strangely (because of the design feature that keeps the pack from laying against your back). Difficult to pack so the weight is distributed evenly - you will definitely want to watch the "how to pack" video Osprey provides.

Rated5out of5byValjeanfromGreat All-round daypackI was looking for a mid-size pack for cooler weather. This one works perfectly. It has a good size main compartment and smaller ones for cell phones and those gotta get to them quickly items. It holds a bladder and has two side web pockets for extra water bottles, or whatever. I'd recommend it for Autumn and Spring day hiking.

Rated3out of5byT-AdventurerfromToo smallThis pack actually comes in three sizes, although REI only carries one of them. I found the small to be just that--too small. You really can't get much in there. I returned it and bought a medium on line. I would likely have bought the large if I knew that the differences were only minimal.
I used the pack on a vacation with day hikes every day, and it is lightweight and very comfortable.

Rated4out of5bySailor JennyfromGreat fit for a Fuji Climb!I'm living in Japan right now, and taking advantage of the MANY day hikes Japan has to offer. I'm lucky enough to be able to rent gear for my hikes. I love this pack so much that I came here to buy my own. I'm 5'4" and 35. I'm a casual hiker, I only do day hikes with varying degrees of difficulty. The reason I finally decided to buy this pack is the completion of my Mount Fuji climb. I had enough room for my 3L water bladder, a smart wool long sleeve tee, raincoat and pants, gaiters, gloves and a polartec cowl, all in the main pack. I did not have to disconnect my hydration tube to insert my bladder, the hole is large enough for it to slide through. The top pocket is plenty big for my keys (on the convenient hook) and energy bars/trail mix while I keep my first aid type stuff in the front pocket. The hip straps also have generous pockets, although I took off a star because the zippers are not the best. They should (in my opinion) zip closed the other way. The small pocket on the right strap is great for lip balm! The mesh back does a great job of keeping my back cool. Really halls to regulate the temperature on a vertical climb when it gets cold/hot so quickly. The hip straps also it me in just the right place and really distribute weight well. I had no issues either with scrambling up rocks on all fours or descending in lava rock and sand. This bag really feels like part of me!

Rated5out of5bySuebee12fromPerfect for day hikesWas perfect, air flow kept my back from being sweaty. I couldn't hardly feel the weight there, put the weight on my hips and not my shoulders

Rated5out of5bylittletonfrankfromexcellent product.I bought this as a day pack for my wife. She took it on a multi-day sailing adventure and also for use on day hikes in the White Mountains. So far she's found the pack to be just right for her size and frame. She's very happy with it.
