Rated 4 out of 5 by Stephen from Just enough! This is a nice, simple on route pack. Lighter and bigger than most 16L on route packs. All the things you want to take on route for a long rock route fit well without having to overstuff. Unobtrusive while climbing. I have not used it for alpine climbing, but I dont know if it would be reasonable to pack the full alpine kit plus crampons inside without going Mr. Bojangles on the harness from the trailhead. I think some light daisy chains on the outside for lashing crampons with shock cord, etc. would fix this without tipping the scales. Good pack! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonathan from Small, streamlined, and ready to get high! I bought this pack for multi-pitch and alpine terrain. The simple features do the job. It carries well with no unnecessary bulk to get snagged. The rope capture strap on top of the pack is super clutch. I do have to pack it very carefully if I want to get a single rack, instructor rack, lunch, and puffy in. So I could see going for the 28L version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris from My goto pack Tough, lightweight, full featured pack. Really digging this bag. I can get a full rack, extras layers, food, guide kit and some extras for the day in it. Versatile for summer climbing or winter ice with the tool holders. The only tweak I would suggest is the adjustable sternum strap is girth hitched and has a larger profile than I'd like. A smaller clip into the adjustable daisy would be much cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jay_lar95 from The perfect day pack This pack is by far the best all around smaller-day pack I've ever purchased. At first glance, the pack does not appear to offer all too much. When I pulled it out of the packaging I distinctly remember saying to myself, "That's it?". However, it has by far exceeded my expectations. This backpack is with me literally everywhere I go; from the trails where it easily holds a hydration bladder and the rest of your daily essentials, to the office as I actually even use the bag as my daily commuter. It fits my 14' laptop and case, water bottle, book, magazine, etc. all within a rather stylish fashion. The durable outer material holds up and doesn't scuff too easily, and dirt collected from your day on the mountain wipes off without much vigor. Overall very satisfied with my decision to purchase this pack. For those wondering if it is too small, don't fret. I am 6'1 220 lbs and it does not look like a children's backpack on me. I am also kinda happy about that. Cheers y'all and best of luck in your future adventures!
