Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size Perfect size for those long day adventures. The pack rides great on extended hikes and I have never found myself saying "This pack would be perfect IF..."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great day pack, good climbing pack. This is one of the most comfortable backpacks I have owned in 45 years. In addition to a general hiking pack, I use it as a multi pitch climbing pack to carry water and food on long climbs. I much prefer this pack on a climb to my speed 40 because it moves with my body much better almost disappearing. As a day pack it is very nice because it is long enough to match my torso's length thus the waist belt is useful. The reactive harness system really works too. A few changes would make it much better. The waist belt should have gear loops rather than pockets(similar to speed), waist belt should cinch towards the rear rather than the front, the waist belt straps are excessively long (it is easy enough to cut the straps to a more reasonable length). A velcro loop to hang the water bladder from would be a big improvement over the current loop. I cannot hang my osprey water bladder in this pack but the camelbak bladder with a hook works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Daypack for Long Days This pack is the perfect size for long day hikes that require a little technical gear. The suspension system is amazing. Used this pack for a 20 mile canyon. Carried over 6 liters of water plus food and gear. The pack was comfortable the entire day. Pockets are well thought out and make it easy to organize gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Day Pack Nice all-season, but not all-terrain day-pack. I've used this for everything from cycling, crag approaches, easy ski tours and hiking for the past couple years. Skins fit easily in side or rear flap for laps." Down "jackies" stash nicely. Good capacity and fits snug if your don't overload it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Commuter Bag With the best suspension system in the business this bag is super versatile. Great for bike commuting and day hikes. Would be perfect if it had a rain cover and/or a place to stash one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I needed to downsize from my Arcteryx 35L pack and am so glad I did! All of my day hiking gear easily fit into this compact beauty, including my water bladder. With its barely there feel, and articulating hip belt I was able to summit my peak with relative ease. 10/10 would buy again!
