Perfect for day hikes

I volunteer in a State Park and hike mountain trails several times a week. The Gregory Maya 16 works perfectly for me. I use a Platypus 2 liter Big Zip reservoir which fits in the intended sleeve. The pack fits my 5'4" 120 lb. frame perfectly. The pockets fit my extra jacket, lunch, wallet and keys, and additional maps and reference materials I carry. I usually carry a bottle of wine as well. No problem. I can stuff my hiking poles in when not using. The pack is so functional, I think I could use it as a carry-on for a weekend trip as I am expert at packing light. I wasn't sure about the side pockets on the waist strap, but they are small and do not add bulk or get in the way. Perfect for Chapstick/lipstick, Kleenex, and little hard candies for the trail. The fabric and color are nice. I will be taking it to Spain soon and trying it out as my day pack for sightseeing and some hiking on the Camino de Santiago. Not sure it will be fashionable for city use, but we shall see.
