I took this backpack on a 14 mile overnight hike. It is highly adjustable, though it might be intended for smaller people. I'm 5'10" 160lbs. I had it adjusted near it's maximum size. If you're a big guy, I would avoid this pack. Otherwise it's a fantastic backpack... sturdy constuction yet lightweig...

Don't see how these other reviews could be for this pack, as not only does it NOT have a lot of pockets, the 2 side pockets are ridiculously small (much smaller than would fit on the pack, so makes no sense) The pack itself was also smaller than I expected. While it is as much as I would want to carry on a backpacking trip, I use a pack mostly for travel abroad, and I'm not sure it will carry enough for that. There is no rain cover, which surprised me - I thought all serious packs had them. And the foam padding on the shoulder straps and waist is very stiff. While the waist probably will be okay, having these "stiff-as-a-board" masses pressing on your neck, arms and shoulders is bound to be uncomfortable for any serious carrying. And the last thing is that it's virtually impossible to release the waist clip. So far I've had to find a table edge to get the thing off - my 59-yr-old fingers can't do it . I can just imagine needing to pee in a hurry out on the trail and [...]! - no table edge!. I did get this pack at a good price (I'm sure all these issues are why it's a closeout), and am still trying to decide whether to keep it or not - it's been sitting in the box while I was away for a month. It will very likely be my last pack, and I don't want to use it and then wish I had sent it back. So - probably a decent pack for the money, but - I'd keep shopping if you are a serious pack user.

Absolutely perfect! I am 5'4 and 130 lbs. It is the perfect size and will do wonderfully for short backpacking trip. It expands great! Has a lot of pockets for many little items of use. Gonna start backpacking soon when the snow melts a little bit. Extremely excited to use it!

The backpack arrived quickly and as described. I bought it for my son to use on a Boy Scout backpacking trip this weekend. We have yet to use it, but he has tried it on and seems pleased with it. He likes the fact that it has many pockets, loops for hanging last minute items, and an airflow padded insert for his back to keep him cooler. The buckles are a little tight (difficult to undo hook), but we're hoping that's only because it's brand new and they will be easier to use as he breaks it in. I'll try and update more after his trip this weekend.

Fist off let me say im a 6'2" man with a wide chest and shoulders. I have a 36" pant size and thins pack fit fine. The waist adjusted to fit and tighten up around me to support the weight of the pack. The shoulder padding can be about 1" longer than whats there for extra comfort. But if you are carrying it on your hips as you should be its just fine. The material is very waterproof and the zippers are all seamed but are not very water proof. I tested this out with a water bottle. The seamed zippers did keep the water out but i would say if you were in a down pour get a rain cover to be extra safe. But this would do great in a light rain. The main compartment is totally water proof with two tightening straps to lock out water. Of note: The straps are really cool looking being off white against black but they do get dirty kinda easy. Have to wash the straps after your adventure.
The waist band adjusts to 54" it should fit a 36" waist easily. It also fit torso lengths for 16" to 18.5". If you are not sure of your torso length, the following link has information on how to measure your Torso. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/backpack-guide/
