Nitro 26 - Pack is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortbable, well fitting, many uses have had 6+ mos, use it from day hikes to international travel (i travel light and roll clothes). i even use this for dips and pullups and just add some weight. i put a 3L water bladder in the outside compartment and it works well, can loop hose easily on shoulder strap (but this would be one area for next version). very happy with this purchase. this pack stands out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fitting pack, straps up with comfort. I’ve been using mine hiking the White Mountains. My Nitro 26 pack straps up to me in comfort and moves with me nicely. It‘s the perfect size for my essentials. I normally carry up to 18 lbs. of gear, food and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great adventuring pack I’ve had this pack for 4 years now and use it for fishing miles of gnarly canyons, other day adventures, and it’s my aid pack for skipatrol in the winter. I’m 6’5” with a muscular build and finding a proper fit daypack can be hard since they often don’t come in different sizes, like larger packs. This pack fits great and is pretty comfortable, my 5’10” wife has used it on occasion too and didn’t have a problem with the fit. I especially love the cable system built into the shoulder straps allowing the pack to move with the natural movement of your hips and back instead of The hip straps rubbing. I am not the most gracious and have fallen and banged it around quite a bit with no significant damage. It’s been through rough country and dragged up a cliff or 2 by rope and still holds strong. I recently bought/tried 2 other packs from another reputable company for bird hunting that just don’t fit me at all. Then I came to my senses and realized I just need to buy another one if these and use my old one for bird hunting, it’s not a good look to have blood on your skipatrol aid pack. I absolutely recommend this pack for all types of adventures, it’s light, durable, had great features, and is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable & versatile day pack-4.5 stars Although I have only had this product for a short time, I am really pleased with it so far. Perfect size pack for a full day on the trail or working out in the field. I love that my snowshoes fit in the front pocket, as well. The only improvement I would recommend is adding the ability to adjust torso length on this pack. With a very short torso (xs-s in packs), I find this pack rests a little high on my shoulders, even when cinched down all the way. That said, it is still very comfortable when fully loaded with weight. 4.5 of 5 stars, if that were an option. Love the pack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent comfort/ features, not bladder friend A superb pack! I was concerned about the comfort of the corrugated foam, but it is soft and compresses well. The hip belt is just spectacular, which many packs lack. No cheesy 1 inch web belt here. I was surprised at the lack of ability to hold a water bladder. I wrongly assumed this was on all packs now. But I am going to try a lumbar bladder and bet it will work well sitting at the bottom of the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super useful Working outdoors in a job where I need to carry my stuff plus work equipment and also sometimes client gear, this bag holds it all. I have no trouble at all just puting in more stuff. It's very simplistic in design and doesn't try to overload you with too many pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bag I bought this a while back locally and for the price I thought it would be an average pack. I was blown out of the water by the comfort and feel of this bag. Hiked 50k straight with it and I was comfortable as ever. Felt like I was carrying feathers. The back is amazingly well ventilated as is the hip belt. Only thing I wish it had would be a second hip belt pocket, perhaps a mesh stretchy pocket.
