This bag has been perfect for my 2-3 week trips. It is sturdy, attractive, and practical - with useful compartments for sleeping bag, shoes, smaller items, etc. The collapsible inner bag provides more volume, but only if necessary. I've taken this bag on several rough trips and it still looks new. The rain cover came in so handy, not so much for the rain, but for covering the straps on the bag during check-in. Can't wait to test it out in the rain as well! The adjustable straps also make it easy to fit to my small frame. No back or shoulder pain!

Awesome pack, highly recommended
Took this pack for a few day hike in the Adirondacks. Could fit plenty inside and strapped the rest to the outside. Durable, water-tight, and has lots of nice pockets for various supplies. Comfortable to carry, even with lots of gear.

Very efficient pack
Really an amazing pack. The stowaway rain cover on the bottom of the pack is very convenient when weather turns bad.
