  • Great daypack or light overnighter!! well made

    I have used mountain smith products for years and this is another example of a their well made products. Excellent design, just the right amount of pockets, great shoulder straps and waist band. I am in a wheelchair now and I use this pack for shopping and can carry a fair amount of weight for its size. I used to be a professional mountain guide and search & rescue and have a used a number of packs over a 30 year period and I highly recommend this pack for its size, quality, and function. This is an excellent "overnighter"size as a light down bag, clothes, stove/pan, water bottles, 10 essentials would easily fit into this pack. RTD

  • Exactly what I wanted

    I had previously purchased another bag for bug-out situations, but since then, I have started using that one for school, so I got this to replace it. I'm glad I did, because this one has some extra capacity, and while still offering multiple compartments, it doesn't go overboard. The material is high-quality rip-stop and the adjustment options combined with the strap padding and light weight, make it very comfortable to wear for long periods. The same features that make it suited for my needs would also make it a great weekend or day-trip bag for hikers. The size is just right and there are places for water bottles on either side. There are also two side pockets, a main compartment, an exterior organizer, and a small extra pocket all the way on the outside. In its range, I would say this is one of the best values available.
