    It has a nice semi frame, zips all the way down to the bottom so that you can lay the pack down to pack stuff in, and fits to your back better than a normal day pack.

    This pack has been a long-time favorite. Sadly I burned it on a four-wheeler tailpipe and had to get a new one.

    It's very light weight. It's comfortable. It has all of the right compartments. Perfect for hiking and longer mountain bike trips. It can easily compress if you don't have a full pack.

    This is great for commuting - holds my laptop, lunch and extra clothes needed for the winter. The front pocket is great at organizing, and the outside flap can be used for gloves, helmet, whatever. It's also really comfortable, and well-suited for a smaller (5'5") frame!

    I get a little tired of reading reviews from people that haven't used the product. In this case however it took me about 30 seconds to figure out that the frame sheet on this pack was apparently designed by an idiot. Its basically a series of plastic tubes joined together. That in itseld might be okay except that the tubes are arrayed in a horizontal manner which means that the frame sags into a z pattern. The whole idea behind a frame is to provide a rigid structure to allow the weight to be carried by the waist belt. Had they arranged the tubes in a vertical manner it probably would have worked just fine. If i had time I would send this pack back and order a Black Dimond which is what I have (this pack is for my wife) and which has a killer suspension system. Alas we are climbing St Helens in 4 days and there is just no time to reorder. This will have to do. I will probably try to modify it with some vertical stays if I can find the right material. It was very reasoanbly priced but I could have purchased the Black Dimond for only $10 more. The BD's do tend to be a little spartan (they put thier money into function, not adding a lot of features) and I thought my wife would like a few of the features of this pack such as the U shaped zipper that provides easy access to the main pouch and the stuff it pocket on the back. Those features are nice. I also did a mock loading and it seems the size is adequate for what will be needed in a summit pack in October. Bottom line if you are looking for a good technical pack you might want to consider something else unless you don't mind making the modifications I am considering.

    This is a great bag at a great price. It had all the basic functionality that I wanted as a daypack for hiking, running, and commuting to work. Great ventilation on the back and through straps, lots of pockets, very adjustable.

    Only complaints are that the rear panel frame, though it does a great job eliminating pressure on the back and aiding in ventilation, isn't rigid enough to support the pack standing on it's own (which slightly impedes the ease of loading) and that I'm not a huge fan on the white straps... then again, that's my fault for color selection. The various tightening straps are also a little excessive in length. And if we're being REALLY picky, a clip for a hydration tube would have been great. Added one myself, but integrated would have been nicer.

    Working hard to dirty the bag up and put it through the ringer. Has survived several hikes and runs so far with only positive things to say. Great bag, definitely worth the purchase!
