I bought this pack mostly for hiking and short backpacking trips. It is very comfortable, though a little large. im 5'9 and the thing barely fits me. it is very comfortable, waist belt rocks. I've been hiking mostly in the desert tho so no matter what my back gets pretty sweaty. Balance is gr8, reservoir hasn't leaked in the least. easy to remove and clean. wish there were 2 waist pockets. I rly like the bag for what it is, if ur a good packer you can probably fit a weekends worth of junk in it.
Has anyone worn this pack on a mountain...

Works as a Climbing Day-pack
I have the 38L and this pack will hold a rope(tighter fit) and gear for a day of sport climbing just fine. Along with some water, extra layers, camera, etc. and isn't bad at 3.17 lbs / 1.44 kg due to the added comfort.
The NVIS back panel is hands down the most comfortable I've ever felt and is ultra breathable. Straps are crazy long everywhere on this pack for some reason, but whatever. .
I got this thing on sale or else I probably wouldn't have picked it up for the regular price $ as it isn't the most durable thing in the world, but I am still happy with it and the pack has stayed functional despite some minor wear.
Straps and waist belt combined with the back pannel make it feel like you're carrying half the weight you really are and your balance remains stable and centered!
Has a couple smaller pockets including one on the hip belt and one on the back, a large side zip to get to that rope or water in the middle or bottom of your pack, great compression straps and adjustability, 3 liter reservoir included, and plenty of places to 'biner things to the outside of the pack. The resevoir also has it's own zip pocket between the main compartment and the back panel to keep it away from your stuff and well insulated.
I have no regrets with this bag and I really like the citronelle/woodbine color too it's like a neon yellow/green that's much brighter than in the pic.
Is this waterproof? If not what cover...
Is this waterproof? If not what cover should I get?
It is not waterproof, get one of these http://www.backcountry.com/sea-to-summit-ultra-light-siliconized-pack-cover
BC has a few other rain covers, just do a search for them.
Waterproof packs are almost impossible to find, and if you do, they become pretty expensive (a couple of Arcteryx models). Most will have a coating and do a fair job repelling moisture up to a point, but that's it. You need to add a pack cover, although Osprey makes a few technical day packs in this size range wherein that rain cover is integrated and can be stowed away when not in use. As another alternative, you can line the inside of your pack with a waterproof sack like an ultra-sil. Hope that helps.
I would just put your stuff in a trash compactor bag and then into the pack (using the trash bag as a pack liner). Inexpensive, lightweight, and effective.
It's not waterproof, but it does have a nice DWR coating on the nylon to help it bead off any minor water that might come in contact with it.
Definitely get a rain cover or use the Trash Bag Idea below if you want to use it in the rain.
