Rated4out of5byCigarBfromExcellent single-day activity packI do a lot of day hiking, road cycling, and running. Because of this mix of activities, I try to keep one moderate-capacity (approx. 1000 cu inches) pack in my gear stash. I bought this one to replace a CamelBak I beat to death over about 6 years. I've used the pack on about 7 hikes totaling about 70 miles, and 6 rides totaling about 190 miles. It's been excellent for both types of activities. It allows you to adjust quickly for either type, keeps your water out of the way until you need it, and the zippers on all pockets stay shut even on long downhill runs or while ducking through underbrush on non-trail stretches. Cleans up easily afterward. Only minor quibble is the waist belt tends to work itself loose after trail running stints that bounce you around a lot. You just have to reach down and cinch it up again.

Rated4out of5bymeow314fromI dig this backpack, a lot.I take this backpack with me wherever I go. I stay hydrated, and it's not cumbersome at all. My only problem at all, is that I like to take this bag climbing and sometimes my shoes or whatever is in the storage area obstructs water flow. Not a big deal.

Rated4out of5bySixfromDesigned For Short JauntsI use mine for all-day hikes/rides and over-night trips. For me, it's the perfect size and fits my torso nearly perfectly making it very comfortable and stable.
Although the load bearing straps can be ajusted to fit, the only thing I would add are risers to bring the pack closer to my shoulders. I know it may not be necessary for some, but for me, it would make this pack perfect.

Rated4out of5by313 outdoor adventurefromBest pack 4 the urban wanna be mtn bikerBought this not too long ago and hit the mtn bike trails these past few weekends. This pack is by far the best purchase for a dad, biker, hiker, outdoor enthusiast.
I went up north for a week's vacation with the family - use the space for diapers, sunglasses, lunches, extra water bottles and we took off as a family on a bike trip. This performed as a "catch all" and it was awesome.
