Summary: Summary Best for light day hikes, peak bags, or just something that can be used in everyday life. Pros Had a collapsible framesheet built in, even when removing the one included with the pack. Able to handle up to fifteen pounds comfortably. Carries laptop and school materials better than Osprey Manta 25. No complaints. Cons Webbing hip belt, but the angular distribution of weight puts it all on the small of the back which is quite comfortable if needing shoulder relief.

Summary: This is a pack and carry daypack, not a "daily user." The bag is well made and the materials are tougher than they look, but there are more suitable bags for daily carry in this size range, like the Black Diamond Bullet and BBee packs. But for packing inside a large backpack for day hikes out of base camp, or inside luggage for destination use when traveling by air, it's hard to beat this pack. Mainly because this is light, not-bulky, and value-priced.

Summary: Excellent summit pack. Advertised at 15L capacity, I used this on a 23-pitch rock route. Carried 3L water, enough food for 1 day, and some emergency supplies. Rides high on your back so it's good for rock climbing. I didn't really use the compression straps but they would come in handy when stuffing fleeces or down jackets.
