I used this pack for hiking and biking. I biked a trail for 25 miles, pack was loaded with food, tools, water etc. and was still very comfortable. I also like the way the pack opens and you can load and find stuff very easily. Great pack, would recommend and buy again.

I have some larger Kelty packs but chose this one as a commuter pack for work. This is just a little bit large for what I need but it has the better hip support that I didn't find on the smaller packs. I like the outside pockets and in general the very practical Kelty design.

I had been searching for a pack that could carry a hydration system, basic trail gear for myself and my dog, some camera gear and a decent size tripod. For whatever reason packs that combine enough room for day hike gear and camera gear are hard to find, or insanely expensive. The main things i wanted out of a bag was to have a hydration sleeve, decent carrying capacity and a simple way to carry a camera tripod. ( the liter size pockets on the sides of the bag with the two quick release straps on the sides of the bag work perfectly ) This bag covers everything i want for a extended day / photography hike, or a somewhat minimal multi-day backpacking trip. Bottom line is im very happy with this bag, including the great price from Sierra Trading Post.

Great pack for hiking/daytrips. Water bladder fits in easily, not like in some backpacks I've had. Side pockets are great for storing random things while hiking. You can fit a lot of stuff inside this bag. Comfortable, feels great to wear. Can't wait to go hiking with it again.
