This pack is great, perfect for a weekend trip. There are a lot of pockets and storage options. I love the hip belt pockets, they are great for snacks, GPS, maps, headlamp, or any other small item you need quick access to. The ice-axe loops are great for storing your trekking poles when you want them out of the way completely. The best part is Osprey's warranty, I had to replace some buckles and webbing that my dog decided to much on. They where awesome! It was quick and easy, they didn't even charge me. You can't go wrong with Osprey!
