I like this pack. The 2 straps come together up at the top...this was noted as a negative in some of the reviews, but it's sooooo light that it seems to keep it in place. It's very sturdy and comfortable but there is NO padding...that's not a problem, just an FYI...I keep my cameras in their cases when they're in the pack. It also has a sturdy carry strap at the top that makes it easy to grab-and-go when you stop to sit and take it off. There is a pouch area for a hydration insert along with the opening for the straw etc. I've ordered an insert for hike, etc. The exterior pockets make access to cell phone, keys, etc., easy and also easily take on 2 - 20 oz. water bottles. My only negative is I wish it has some loops, etc. for a carabiner or two....

I wanted it for day outings while vacationing with two young kids. Worked perfect for that purpose. Held two tall water bottles well, plus strapping jackets on etc while holding 5 sandwiches, snacks, first aid kit, sunscreen etc inside. Great camera pouch on the inside top too. The only think iffy about it was the straps came together at the top at a loop. Sometimes I did get an ache from it but it was easy enough to ignore it, even after wearing it for a 10 hour day.
