I wanted a pack that was a medium size to carry tools, snacks and some clothes. This pack does it all. The straps are great and the interior gear holders are compartmentalized perfectly for various gear. There is even a soft lined sunglass holder, very nice touch. This is the best pack ever! I'm a size medium and this pack with all combined straps fit perfectly. I have no complaints with this item. With this sites no fuss return policy I was able to upgrade from previously purchasing a pack that was too small. This really helped my confidence in choosing to purchase online without trying this on in a store.
