I was looking for a biking/commuting pack and it is exactly what I was looking for. It holds all of the things I need for the day (tablet, gym stuff, etc) but is very light and breathable. I am a 5'6'' woman and the small/medium is a perfect length for my torso and I barely had to adjust it. I al... Read More
Reviewed by summitseeker from NH on Saturday, January 10, 2015Yes, this pack does have some cool features and lot's of ways to compress your pack, but it is a tiny pack to begin with so it isn't like you have 20 lbs of gear shifting around.
The zippers are cheap and have surgical tubing over the pull strings. The backpacks itself is made of a flimsy material and the foam padding is budget. I really like Mountain Hardwear's clothing but this pack is lame.
Go with the Lithium Z pack from Mammut. Similar size, better components, better straps, and usually a better price if you shop around.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by day pack from china on Friday, January 2, 2015I use this for day trips mostly, some hiking, going to the beach. This pack is excellent for packing, essential items like dry gloves, snacks, beer & wine.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mel from New York on Monday, November 10, 2014I bought this pack as a gift so I had to quess at the size. I am returning it as it is too small. If in doubt get the bigger one. The pack is sturdy, colorful, and will hold a lot. Material appears very durable yet the pack is lightweight.
Reviewed by Cait from Pennsylvania on Monday, October 27, 2014This pack would've been exactly what I was looking for: its a nice size for a day pack, roomy water bottle pockets, nice extra stuff pocket on outside, fit my computer, has awesome hip pockets on the waist belt, and i even loved the deep red color...but the support/frame of the pack is not ideal. i agree with the reviewer who noted that the pack seems to pull away from your back. and i also agree with the reviewer who describes the frame sheet as being poorly designed - it is flimsy and the design causes the backpack to fold over on top of itself. sooooo disappointing. if having good/proper support is important to you - i would probably not bother with this pack.
Question & Answer

“Can this bag roll up and for into a larger pack? ”
Assume wanting to have this along in the larger pack to use the MH Fluid for day hikes. You can't roll it, but you could place inside a larger pack and have it flat against inner wall and pack gear in front of it. My son may take this one that way for trip to Philmont High Adventure Camp in NM next year.
“So my torso is right around 19 inches, and thats the max size that a S/M fits for torso. What would you recommend? Also, what size hydration bladder can be used with this?”
My wife suggested sticking with S/M - she's 5'5" and about 120 lbs. We fit an insulated 2L bladder with room to spare, but did not try a 3L. Side pockets fit taller 3/4 L to L bottles/ flexibles each.
“How large of a hydration bladder (1l, 2l, 3l) will this pack accept?”
