Great looking pack.
It has a small little pocket on the waist belt which you can't see from the photos.
Back system seems great, expanding volume feature is good.
I would like to see a few more external lashing points if you do want to attach a sleeping mat, etc.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by PA Ram from Pennsylvania on Friday, January 16, 2015Just the right size for dayhikes or long days at a place like Disney. Seems to have all the bells and whistles - compression straps, adjustments that you would expect in a larger backpackers backpack. Also seems the correct size to squeeze through as a personal item on airlines - may have to squish it a bit to fit the sizing bin but the internal frame has some flex to it and is not rigid.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by tdechill from Kingston, NY on Thursday, November 6, 2014I owned the 1st version of the Wizard Air 24+4 and loved it! It had an external frame and the flex suspension system was easy to adjust and really kept your back dry. It's only weak point was the zipper on the small pocket: very delicate. Now, the new version has some improvements, but also some weaknesses. The zippers are now more heavy duty, but they removed the rain flaps over them. There are more compartments, which is nice, but the smaller main compartment is hard to access. But the main complaint I have about the new version is the new suspension system. The frame is now internal and the adjusters just don't tension the mesh back as tight. Also, the adjusters themselves don't lock very well. Lastly, there were always two pole holders on the 1st version which is logical. the new version has only one pole holder. (Unless, of course, you buy the color "marine", then there are two. Hmmm). Still my favorite daypack though. No matter how heavy you load it up, you don't feel the weight on your back.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by City Biking Girl from Brooklyn on Monday, July 28, 2014New York City bike commuting is a sweaty endeavor. The suspension system built in to this pack keeps me from getting a giant sweat spot on the back of my shirt. (I don't do panniers because I don't want the extra weight on my cycle and like the added protection of a backpack should I fly off the bike and fall!) It's got plenty of room for work and gym supplies and decent organizer pockets. The built-in rain protector is great for flash summer downpours. The only slight drawback on the pack is that the topmost pocket is a bit tough to use because the suspension system squeezes it a bit and the waist belt pocket is too small to be of much use.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by culprit from Brooklyn, NY on Thursday, July 24, 2014I bought a few daypacks to try & compare, but this is not the one I kept. Too big & bulky for me, and the pack itself added too much weight.

“I'm looking for an everyday school pack that I can take to the mountains for day hikes. Is the main compartment large enough for my 15.5" laptop?”
It should fit your lap top.
A hydration compatible pack means that in general is has a compartment against your back (but inside the pack) that holds a water reservoir. There will also be a port on one or both sides at the top of the pack to route a drinking tube from the reservoir to your mouth.
