Rated5out of5byBillie from the HillsfromMountain Hardwear Lander Laptop PackI bought this backpack for my wife, for day hiking.
She loves it. The pack is very comfortable, lightweight and capable of carrying sufficient gear for long day hikes.

Rated5out of5byAmber in Walla2fromExcellent packI bought this pack primarily to replace my laptop backpack for school, as my kid absconded with my old pack. Let me start by saying, I'm secretly glad she did, because this is by far a much better pack all around. This pack was used during my last year of wine making school, so I can say with confidence that it was put through anything you can put it through in a regular classroom setting - and then some. It performed equally as well while commuting on my bike or day hiking, always holding whatever supplies I needed for whatever activity I had in mind. When my load is a little lighter, it cinches down easily. I really like all the loops on the front of the pack, and the reinforced zipper pulls are great for using with gloves or mittens on. The padding on the back really helps keep you from sweating, and the ripstop fabric sheds water (and wine) quite nicely, and has held up quite well in the past year that I've had it. It is also hydration compatible, though I have not used that feature myself.
