A good set up for the weekend warrior. Light weight and compact. Great for hikes on snow and ice. all purpose set up.
I have used this pack for trips for 1 to 8 hours. It has plenty of room for the day hiker ( as long as you know how and what to pack). I've used it the hot summer and in the icy cold winter. I'm a small guy - 5'6 150lbs so for me, it's perfect.
