Perfect day hike pack...600 cubic inches...extremely well made

I was worried that this pack was a bit large when I first received it. I got one for me and one for my wife. We just finished a week of day-hiking Yosemite, and these packs were absolutely fantastic. Carried two bottles of water, rain jacket, binoculars, small camera, snacks, bird identification guide, etc. Structurally extremely well made, handled rain and waterfalls without problem. IMPORTANT: the shoulder strap is great as a stabilizing strap along with the hip belt. Throw the pack over your shoulder, holding it on with the shoulder strap cross chest, and lock in the waist belt. Simple and very, very stabile. The shoulder strap can be tightened or loosened as needed. This set-up allowed me to hike steep trails with no load shift. Truly an excellent pack. Highly recommended.
