Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been climbing with the 14L version of this pack for several months now. It's so comfortable I almost don't know I'm wearing it. It fits a 1L collapsible water bottle, approach shoes, down vest, wind shirt, car keys, hat, snacks, camera and route description. The front "cell phone" pocket is too small for a cell phone, but just right for a two-way radio. I also like that you can detach the shoulder strap and the cross body strap to make it easy to get on and off.

I knocked a star off because I think it would be more functional if it had just one main pouch instead of two.

When I take a rope, I run a piece of accessory cord from the haul loop over the top of the pack to the nylon webbing holding the buckle on the front of the pack. I put the Mountaineers coil under that and then secure the ends of the rope under the side compression straps. It's not ideal, but it works in a pinch. Honestly, though, you might be better off with a Deuter Guide Lite 28SL. Same size, but designed better for mountaineering and alpine climbing.

The first time I loaded this pack up and put it on I fell in love! It fit me so securely, I felt like I could do cartwheels. There is just enough room for rain gear, down jacket, shovel/probe, extra gloves/hat, the essentials (sunglasses, sunscreen, headlamp, compass/map, emergency extras, etc.), food, and water. I can strap on a pair of snowshoes, ice ax, and crampons to the outside and I'm ready to rock for an entire day in the backcountry.

I do wish the hip pocket was a tad larger. Deuter could fix this on all their packs, I think. The lid is also firmly attached to the pack in the back (i.e. it doesn't float), which makes adding that last piece of gear challenging.

If you're looking for a smallish day pack, you can't go wrong with this one.
