Pretty good overnight pack

The Solaris is a solid overnight/very large day pack. I have generally used it as a day pack, but it almost too big for that purpose (my bad on that front). On the other hand, it is perfect for an overnight pack with a stuff space in the bottom with a trampoline bottom under the main compartment to divide the two as needed. It is water reservoir compatible and has great side pockets (both internal and external)as well as trekking pole loops which is nice. The shoulder straps are comfy and the hip belt does a good job taking weight (I am 6'0" 180lbs). I would say the straps and ride are not as comfortable or advanced as some of the better Black Diamond and Osprey packs (again my bad for not buying one of those), but overall the pack does the job and is durable - I have taken it up and down Half Dome and I have had it fully submerged during cold swims in Zion National Park and it still looks great and nothing has broken.
