REI Venturi 30 Pack - Special Buyis rated4.0out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byfromSturdy and StrongIncredible pack built so well. I used for the first time while at Mt Rainier National Park. I carried a tripod, camera and lenses, lunch, extra clothing, a 3 liter camelback, and other odds and ends. It was extremely comfortable and worth every penny. The frame is built to provide air movement at the back and is well engineered. I like well designed items and find that this is ergonomically designed and works effectively. I look forward to many more miles with it.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat day hike backpackThis is a great backpack for a day hike, the suspension and the tight fabric is good at keeping your stuff at their place and not moving around. If you are sweating a lot, then this is a pack for you. The not so good part is the space looks a bit smaller for 30L backpack.

Rated3out of5byfromMakings of a Great PackThis pack had all the right things going for it. Decent size for day hikes or maybe light overnight, back ventilation (a must for a heavy sweater like me) hip belt pockets and deep water bottle pockets on the sides. However, once I got it on there were a few things that just didn't work. The suspended mesh back panel makes all sorts of creaking and squeaking when moving. I was going to use the pack for bike rides to work and then hiking on weekends, but it just didn't fit well for riding (probably my own fault for hoping it would, doubt it was made for that) Also, the design of the suspended back seemed odd, as the sides and top of the pack curve in to meet my back, which pretty much kept any air from getting in or out of the pocket it created. The zippers on the upper of the two main compartments were too close to the second compartment and they kept getting zipped up in it, making it a hassle to keep things working smoothly. All that being said, there were some great features I liked. The bag seemed made of sturdy material and finishes like it would take a lot of abuse. Zippers were large and sturdy (other than issue noted above), pockets were well sized and easy to get to, the waist belt felt great and the whistle built into the sternum buckle is a neat touch. I ended up returning the pack but really wanted to like it, I may try another REI pack without the suspension to see if that fits the bill better.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat daypackLoaded this pack up with 29# of gear and went hiking. Transferred weight to hips quite well, with just a bit of pressure noticeable on the large pad in the middle of the hip belt. Plenty of room in the water bottle pockets for 1L bottles wrapped with reflectix insulation (adds a bit to the diameter of bottle and makes for a tight fit with some packs) All in all a great pack for day hikes or solo outings!
