Excellent daypack for long trips!
I used this backpack daily for a 2-week trip to China and it was a phenomenal asset! The large capacity made it easy to tote a jacket & other daily necessities while touring about and climbing The Great Wall. Note: Although the capacity is quite large, the pack itself isn't. This pack isn't at all cumbersome. In fact, the design is so great and lightweight that it was very comfortable to carry. The fit on this backpack is great as the straps are slighter than regular packs and the fit more tailored to the shape of one's body so that it hugs one's frame rather than slipping off one's shoulders & back as many packs typically do. I really liked that it has so many smaller compartments, which are easy to access, as it made it easy & efficient to separate supplies. Also like that a bladder can fit so that you can ensure you have adequate water throughout the day's journeying. This is THE BEST pack I have ever owned and highly recommend it!

Great one or two night pack
First pack I have purchased from Mountain Hardware. Quality is fantastic. Size could be a bit larger in order to carry a solid weekend's worth of clothes, gear, etc. Lots of places to put things. Pockets are well thought out.

Backpack is very comfortable and great quality. The color is awesome and it's lightweight which makes it a great riding bag. Would recommend it to anyone needing a good bag with lots of compartments without compromising style and comfort.

Extremely uncomfortable
I bought this pack because, at the time, Altrec did not have the camelbak fourteener in stock. This pack looked essentially the same as the fourteener, so I gave it a try. This is the worst, most uncomfortable day pack I have ever worn. It actually hurt my back just putting it on with out anything in the pack. I returned it the very next day and ordered the fourteener from another site for $5 more. The fourteener is an amazingly comfortable pack, even when carrying loads up to 20 it comes with a bladder.
