Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except... First of all, by purchasing this pack, I discovered 30L is just too small for me, but that isn't reflected in the 4 stars, its just personal preference. The reason I didn't give this bag 5 stars is because of the lack of outside pockets. The two side pouches would have sufficed, except when you have this bag full (and I used up every cubic inch) there is NO stretch in the pouch openings. I couldn't even fit a 16oz bottle of water in one. Otherwise, it is a well thought out and constructed bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Waterproof Day Pack! I saw this pack on the back of a hiking magazine and had to have it. We like to hike in the rain and snowshoe also...was tired of my stuff getting soaked with a normal day pack. The 30 L was just the right size for day trips with extra stuff needed in the winter like extra gloves, jacket, etc. The 2 big compartments and the one on the cover flap worked great for me....just enough to stay organized. I hate water bladders with the straws so I cant tell you how that would work with the pack. The pack felt heavy just picking it up but once strapped on I didnt even notice it was on me...even snowshoeing in 2 feet of powder. Load distribution with the Hardwave suspension and straps work perfect in tandem. The people I went shoeing with were so impressed with the pack and theirs being totally soaked along with everything in it they were ready to go out and get one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seemingly great backpack Have not had it long enough to really have tested, but already got an email asking to review it. It seems like a very well made backpack and has kept water off my things. Agree with another review I read previously though, the external pockets should be made of a different material that has a little stretch. Water bottles don't need to be kept dry, but they do need space and losing internal space by carrying one is dumb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waterproof* *Top pocket is NOT waterproof, it is barely even water resistant. Walked to work this morning and was caught in a somewhat heavy rainfall event (for maybe 10 minutes, not the 24 hours they tout for the bag). When I got into work, I went through the top pocket to get something, I found that a personal item that I kept in the pocket for safekeeping was ruined. I am extremely annoyed with this and will be returning the pack. Other pockets do seem to be pretty water resistant, the rest of my things were dry when I opened my pack up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable & versatile! I love this backpack! It's incredibly comfortable (I'm 6ft tall with a short torso) with just enough support for day-hiking. The waterproof feature makes it easy to bring anywhere and set anywhere. 4 stars because the stuff-sack body is sometimes inconvenient, but the other features and longevity that not having zippers will afford more than make up for it.

What is the capacity of the hydration bladder pocket? Would a 3-litre bladder fit?

Asked by: rphilippi
This pack does fit most 3 liter reservoirs.

The "Frame Material" is listed as "Climbing." What is it actually?

I need to replace the draw string for the main compartment, it frayed after 1-2 years of use - any tips?

Asked by: dmitrigordon
You could try to replace the draw string a durable shoe lace or accessory cord. Adding a safety pin to the end of the new cord can help instillation.
