    I have a good Osprey pack for hiking in the mountains but do a lot of local day hikes. I prefer a good fanny pack primarily since I just have water. This pack is large and much more comfortable than than expected. It is large enough to carry some cold weather gear. A great addition to making equipment

    This is just what I was looking for. I usually use a lumbar pack, but didn't have enough room for extra clothing, rain gear, etc. But now I do! Well designed and constructed for many years of use.

    A friend had an older model which I admired so I bought this. Very durable! Fits well, has adjustment straps to snug up to back. I use this for day hikes. Really like the water bottle holders.

    Holds a lot; has nice pockets. Good construction. But, I can't get it tight enough for my just barely 28" waist. The description is clear, but I was hoping it would work for me.

    Love the hip pack. Hip straps are very comfortable and help unweight your shoulders. Side pockets are wide enough to fit water bottles with large bases.

    Decade ago I owned a MS lumbar pack very simillar design as this one--huge capacity,optional single/braces shoulder straps, side stretch water bottle pockets...while I was touring cycling in west China/Tibet border in summer, I never regret to have it on my back, it carrys 3 liters of water, energy bar, snacks, a Jetboil 1L suite, DC and spare battery, rain ware, down jacket, wallet and passport, and some other accessories. The most important thing is that the pack gives my upper back nice breath,and I fill a Platypus of hot water and slip it into the gap of the waistpad on coasting down from freezing 15000 feet mt pass, this set offers my extra warmth. Sometimes I can deposit my bike and have the lumbar pack for a day hike into the woods. Finally I traded it for a hand-made tibetan style leather pack with a T-cowboy.
    Now I get this new version and still love it , materials evolved a lot, and seems stronger than the old one. I might have it for more day hiking and even trail running. Hey, is that "TLS" stands for " Tell Lovely Story"?
