4out of 5

Pros: Highly Adjustable, Lightweight

Cons: Non Replaceable Straps

Best Uses: Light Loads, Extended Hikes, Day Hikes

Describe Yourself: Avid Adventurer

What Is Your Gear Style: Minimalist

Was this a gift?: No

I purchased this pack used prior to the announcement of all the awards it received. I was first drawn to it because of how compact and how darned light it was. I am constantly looking for deals on lighter and more durable gear. This pack has held 30 lbs like a pro [5 day trip] but I am usually running it at 20 lbs for a 3 day trip with no probs.

Pros: lightweight, many versatile compartments/straps, small, adjustable, hydration insert, cheap!

Cons: Zippers tend to stick sometimes [luckily without tear so far], belt straps are sewn in so no replacements
