Good day pack

Verified Buyer Reviewed by longhuntr74 from Germany on Monday, May 25, 2015
Just the right amount of external pockets to keep your smaller or medium sized stuff readily accessible, but also has a large main compartment. The belt...well...I'm not really sure it serves a purpose. Considering taking it off altogether, or I might use it while biking if I am carrying a full pack...but the only thing it will do is prevent side to side shift. It definitely isn't substantial enough to take weight off your shoulders. On a plus side, it's so thin that it's really not in the way of anything if I just leave it on. A final note...while the back of the pack has padding and channels to (presumably) allow for air flow. Well...my back sweat profusely while wearing it. So anyways...here's my overall assessment:

Pros:
- Appears well constructed
- Side pockets are durable and hold up to 1qt. Nalgene (Full Size/Diameter) with a stretchy spandex type fabric
- Side straps allow you to cinch down bigger loads
- Front compartments (3) allow you to keep your smaller / medium sized gear close at hand and neatly organized
- Spacious main compartment will hold everything you'd need for a day (or perhaps longer) outing
- Loops on back allow for attachment of carabiner/clips
- Comfortable shoulder straps

Cons:
- Tiny waistbelt that serves little purpose (perhaps preventing side to side shifting of load during active motion
- Limited air flow between back pad and wearers back...you're gonna sweat
- Not sure how well this pack would carry "heavy" loads as stated in the description...I would not consider this a hiking/weekend bag...it's more just a large sized day outing pack.
