Sometimes you don't need a full on internal frame backpack but still need something more substantial than a book bag for your day hikes. The Big Shot definitely fills this niche. The large capacity, comfortable suspension, and hydration system compatibility are greatly appreciated. This will handle everything you need for a luxurious day hike and could even be pressed into service for a weekend jaunt if you were going the ultralight route.
