- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love this backpack. In the outdoors I use it primarily for dayhikes and overnighters, though I have managed a 2 night trip with it without problem. Its quite large capacity for a daypack but the pack is so light its not an issue. If I had to rate it purely for its backpacking ability I wouldn't give it 5 stars, probably 4. What makes this pack so outstanding though is its versatility.I also use it as luggage when traveling. It's totally replaced my carry-on bag and now when I fly I just use this backpack as my carry on and a small laptop case as my personal item. I never realized how much of a pain it was to have to take everything out of your backpack to get at something at the bottom. This backpack has eliminated that. I pretty much use this backpack for everything, except 3+ day backpacking trips (which I rarely do).
