Great tent, keeps you dry and shaded and helps with blocking the wind, but u need to use all your guide lines . The tent could use some revising, where the tent connects to the roof rack is a bit of a problem, the tent still rubs against the rack, over time could rub holes into tent, but I managed to use a 1 x 1 board for better support, so now it works better and im good with that.

I only had larger packs and wanted a smaller pack for long day hikes, and for volunteer work on the Appalachian Trail. The 25 L size is plenty roomy for carrying tools for work on shelters and privies (hammers, cordless drill, pry bar, etc). I like the separate compartments on the top flap and organizers inside for wallet, keys, phone etc. The sturdy ice axe loops and tie-offs will be useful.I use the side pocket for a Silky folding saw, and it is very secure. Pack is light and comfortable, seems durable. It has a built-in rain cover, but I found it difficult to pry out of its hiding place. I was looking at the Osprey Kestrel and the EMS Sector when I saw this pack at a great price. Very happy with it. BTW, I wrap up tools in a old towel to protect the pack.

Very happy with this backpack. We have a larger Kelty Backpack and this one is a lot like it only smaller. It is very well made with lots of extra pockets for easy packing. I really love the way waistbelt and shoulder straps feel. I spent a lot of time shopping around for a backpack and got everything I wanted with this one, and at a really good price.

This is a good sturdy lightweight backpack. It has very well place pockets and can hold a lot more than it appears. This backpack is comfortable, and a compact size. We have found it very useful for our day trip snowshoeing and hiking excursions. What you may notice or not in the picture is the handle that is conveniently placed on the front pocket of the pack - this is a sturdy handle useful for when you just want to carry it like a bag.

My priority for my new backpack was alot of pockets to separate/organize travel items to be able to find them more quickly. If I was planning to use my backpack to carry around alot, I would have compromised on the number of pockets and gotten one with better computer and back padding/material. It is lightweight material (another of my priorities), so I don't have to carry a pack that weighs 3 lbs empty, adding to my load, even if only to carry around airports and into hotels. Price was right when on sale!
