I was looking for a biking/commuting pack and it is exactly what I was looking for. It holds all of the things I need for the day (tablet, gym stuff, etc) but is very light and breathable. I am a 5'6'' woman and the small/medium is a perfect length for my torso and I barely had to adjust it. I al... Read More

    I bought this pack as a gift so I had to quess at the size. I am returning it as it is too small. If in doubt get the bigger one. The pack is sturdy, colorful, and will hold a lot. Material appears very durable yet the pack is lightweight.

    This pack would've been exactly what I was looking for: its a nice size for a day pack, roomy water bottle pockets, nice extra stuff pocket on outside, fit my computer, has awesome hip pockets on the waist belt, and i even loved the deep red color...but the support/frame of the pack is not ideal. i agree with the reviewer who noted that the pack seems to pull away from your back. and i also agree with the reviewer who describes the frame sheet as being poorly designed - it is flimsy and the design causes the backpack to fold over on top of itself. sooooo disappointing. if having good/proper support is important to you - i would probably not bother with this pack.

    I absolutely love this pack! I originally bought it for my 12 year old, but it was quickly hijacked by my husband and I. I'm 5'1", 105 lbs and this pack fits my small frame quite well. Surprisingly it adjusted to fit my husband too and he is 6', 185 lbs. It's a very roomy pack. All the pockets are easily accessible. I like the small zippered pockets on the waist belt. They are placed well unlike some other packs I've owned. This has turned into our go-to pack for hiking and my husband uses it for school as well. You can't beat the price either!

    This pack worked out wonderfully for my 3-day 2-night trip down to Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I carried enough clothes for two nights in the dorms there and enough food for 3 lunches, with room to spare. The zippered pockets on the hip belts are great, though not quite large enough for my Samsung Galaxy S5, but that's OK with me; the pockets are great for a small camera, chapstick and a snack bar. I don't generally use a hydration pack, preferring water bottles and the water bottle pockets are roomy and positioned so that I could just reach back and remove and replace the bottles without taking off the pack. I am 5'6" and 145 pounds with a 17.5" torso length, the S/M pack fits great. A bargain at the STP price.

    You have to pay that much money for a hydration backpack and they're too cheap to even include a "BLADDER". That's a major rip off, I'll never purchase a product from Mountain Hardware ever.
