I bought this for my daughter (9 yo) for a week long trip to the Olympic Penninsula. Great pack - well made - excellent features (pockets for snacks on waist belt a big plus). Two things I'd change: 1: The taper at the bottom limits the amount of gear you can put in after putting in a sleeping bag and 2: the lid should float and not be fixed. Small nits on an otherwise excellent product.

I use the Nepal EVO GTX on Rainier (or ski boots if skiing) but have several friends who have summited Rainier with these. I tend to run cold. If you run hot (sleep hot, etc), you'll be fine in summer on something like the DC or Emmons routes. If doing Liberty Ridge or one of the ice faces, these aren't as stiff as what you would want.
