I use this pack for cycling and short hikes when I don't need to carry much gear. 180 cu. in. is plenty of room for my wallet, cell phone, multi-tool, small first aid kit, Clif bar, patch kit and tire lever (if cycling), inhaler, etc, with room to spare. To be honest, it's actually a little big for cycling, but perfect for short hikes when a lot of gear isn't needed.
Very well made, as most North Face products are. The straps work well to secure it to your body, and they don't loosen over time.
