Good features, light weight
my wife uses this as her climbing bag, though i imagine she might use it for a fast 'n' light backpacking trip. It's got good space, especially for a smaller person. she's got her helmet, a couple pairs of shoes, our food for the day, her layers, a trad rack, and usually 3 liters of water with room to spare. it could handle a good, 3-season bag, and gear for 3 or 4 days (as long as you got a 1 person tent, or you split tent/food/cooking gear with partners) without being too extreme. the stuff pocket on the back is great for quick access to rain gear and other jackets.
her complaint is that it is a one-size-fits-all bag and she hasn't been able to get it to fit her 5'5" frame just right. seems like it could be designed with some more shoulder strap adjustability without adding much weight...
Back Suspension View
I recently purchased an Osprey Talon 33 for general use. In general I wanted a bag I could use for, bushcraft, hiking, day treks, bicycle commute, parkour, trail running overnighters, anything up to 5 days. THe Osprey was a great bag, but had an excess of strappingmaterial, made of normal nylon, flimsy and too large for my purposes. So I returned it for this Bag, and I've been nothing but pleased with it. I've packed and used it for a 4 night trip, with downbag, BigAgnes SL1,Exped Downmat, Food, Water Filtration, Cook Kit, Misc essentials. Clothes, shell. Also use it everyday to bike to work and hold weight when running. THe material is durable, while the back ventilation isn't as nice as the Osprey's I don't really mind. It sits well on your hips, though the straps are a little slimmer than the Osprey or a framed bags obviously. it had a nice removeable pad that's behind the inside storage sleeve for hydration bladder. I don't really see myself using it for that but it does fit aM.S.R dromedary 2L , you could easily put something under the top lid, which isn't detacheable, but I like less. Dual iceaxe loops, I don't do anything to need those, but I have strapped a full size axe, and a tomahawk to them and it holds well. It's my go to bag

How to compress and stuff the pack into the lid pocket ?
Will the pack be damaged by over compressed ?
This is the only one of the Marmot Kompressor series packs that doesn't stow in its own hood because of the size of its external features like the hip belt, back sheet and shoulder straps. However, the Ultra and the Plus will by turning the lid pocket inside out, stuffing the rest of the pack in and closing it up using the reversible zipper. And no, those packs won't be damaged doing it, even repeatedly over time.

How large a reservoir does the hydration sleeve hold?
It will easily fit a 100 oz bladder
