I bought this to use for day hikes, and it has not let me down. Went on two 13 mile fairly strenuous hikes this past week, and this pack performed well. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs and it fit me well, although I had to cinch the straps about as far as they would go. I really like the two side pockets that stretch to snugly fit whatever is in the pocket. And I like that it has a sternum strap for an extra secure fit. I was also able to secure my trekking poles to the pack through the side adjuster straps and bottom loops, which was great. I give it four stars only because I do not know how well it will hold up over time. After my first two uses I have found no flaws in this pack.
