Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I got a pair of these flip flops when Chaco first introduced them over 10 years ago. When the finally bit the dust, I immediately went online to find out if Chaco still made them and bought a second pair. These are not cheap footwear. High-quality, made to last. I love slipping into them after a long day of climbing or biking. They look great with a casual sundress. And they're comfortable. What's not to love?

I bought this dress a few months ago to wear in the desert after long days of biking. I packed other clothes for my tour, but liked this dress so much I wore it every day. Since then, I've been able to dress it up for use at work. It's also super comfy to slip into after a long day of mountaineering.

I'm 5'6" and 130 pounds. The small fits perfectly. It shrank up a little after the first wash, which was good b/c I thought it was a little long when I first got it. Now it's perfect.

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.

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.
