I started off on a 70 mile thru hike of Glacier national Park with a new pair of 200 dollar hiking boots. They ended up killing my feet and by mile 7 I was wearing my friends Chacos. Man these really saved me. I did the hike in the originals without the toe strap got back and immediately bought a pair of my own but ended up buying the toe strap version instead. They are very rigid and yet comfortable. They will not come off your feet. This also makes them hard to put on, but that is a trade off. I would prefer not to have the toe strap looking back on it but love these all the same.

Bought this for my summer job last year at Mt. Rainier. It has seen a lot of use since then. Did a lot of back country snowboarding and camping. It's large enough to take on day hikes and small overnight trips, if you can get a little creative with strapping great to the outside. The snowboard straps keep the board really well balanced. The pockets on the waist belt are perfect for a small camera, phone, or avy beacon. I really like the fact that is has a large separate dry pocket to keep your wet gear off your dry warm clothes. (also fits 12pack for those resort days)
I'm 5'11 and 190lbs ~33inch waist this pack fits so well I rarely snowboard without it. The quality of this pack is amazing. I did have a clip on a strap when I ate it with a pair snowshoes strapped in. I sent Osprey an email and had several replacements sent to me free of charge. Really great company and would by this pack over again any day. This is my go to bag for almost everything. You won't be disappointed.
