This pack meets all the needs of a daypacker and worked well for me as an overnighter, too, holding a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, four days days' worth of clothes, flip-flops, water bottle, flashlight, hat, mini toiletries, first aid gear, map, journal, trail snacks, etc. (Hiking buddy carried the tent, though.) All the clips, straps, pockets, and convenient mesh pouches you'd need, and very comfortable and secure padded straps and load lifting system. Chest clip and hip belt are comfortable essentials, and these make the bag--even fully loaded (mine weighed about 28 pounds)--feel like the easiest part of a strenuous hike. Hands-free hiking, no shifting, no pulling, no tugging, no aching neck, shoulders, or lower back at all.
