I have been using this pack for the past two months for touring, and it is well suited for day trips or for an overnighter in the hut. Cons for this pack become quite obvious after some use in the mountains though. The back entrance is way to small which means items have to be strategically placed in order to get to them easier without having to take everything out of the pack. The pouch on the inside of the back zipper fold is quite small as well and you can only fit a couple little items (sun block stick, thermometer). Another con is how the pack sits on your back. For a single day and light load it is quite comfortable, but after doing a heavy load multi day trip (50lbs) it is painfully obvious not to use this pack. It seems to sit really awkward and applies excess pressure on your lower back. Last, the pack straps are quite thin and don't offer any support. This may be different for everyone, but i like a little bit of gel, or cushioning to help support the weight. Overall a decent pack, but mostly suited for quick yo yo days.
