Rated 4out of5
by fromGreat Daypack I have had this pack for half a year. It is my go-to for active outdoors sports where I need some capacity. The biggest plus for this pack is that it is stable. I routinely carry it when cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and hiking, and it just stays tight to my back. Downside is that it is heavy for its capacity (there are 40L packs that weigh the same and provide sufficient support). Additionally, I wish the belt pockets were larger; I can only barely cram in my (not smart) phone, and even a Clif bar is none too small (though it does fit). Fix these two parts, and it would get a 5.

by fromExcellent pack for the price, This is a well designed pack, especially if you like pockets. To be honest, I feel that most find pockets useful on a day pack. It is very comfortable and very practical. I bought this pack at a discounted price which is why it gets 5 stars. If I had paid full price it would have probably received 4 stars. In short, great for the price!
