Long day hikes and wilderness romps require some supplies, but not a river of back sweat.
- WindTunnel back panel system features a mesh trampoline design that draws in fresh air from the sides, cools your back, and then allows your sweat to evaporate through the exit on top
- Superlight aluminum alloy frame provides a rigid structure that doesn't buckle under the pack weight and won't add to your load
- Hydration sleeve and straps let you attach your reservoir's bite valve near your mouth for on-the-go access to your water
- Ergonomic shoulder harness and waist belt distribute the load (up to 25-pounds) and feature a moisture-wicking mesh fabric to help keep you cool and dry
- Easy-access front panel design lets you quickly grab anything from the pack
- Tough, lightweight ripstop pack fabric doesn't rip on pesky overgrown trails
- Fitted rain cover shelters your food and layers from the torrential rains of spring and summer
- Two ice-axe loops double as trekking pole straps to secure your sticks while you scramble up a steeper section of trail or while you hitch a ride to the trailhead

If you were looking for a do-it-all pack...
If you were looking for a do-it-all pack that you could use as a day pack (90% of the time), but didn't want to be limited from doing an overnight trip, would the Alteo 35 be a better option? I don't want a lot of extra bulk, even though the 35 says it only weighs 6 oz more.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
i love this backpack im a Scout and i went to a expedition and the pack is confortable and the rain cover realy work buy one

What would you think about using this pack for snowboarding?
well, It has no carry system, but it would suit fine....Maybe a little big for resort riding but it would work....as far as backcountry snowboarding goes...its a great size. It has ice-axe attachments, but again, no snowboard carry...

What is a great hydration pack to put inside this pack? I bought it, and considering buying the water pack for it. I'm not familiar with these water hydration packs- but quality is a must for me. Thanks for any help from anyone out there!!!
Camelbak makes a lot of good hydration systems, their unbottle ones are awesome. I personally use an unbottle 100 system, and it works very well. There's other sizes for them too.

I have the Angstrom 30 which performs very well, but how does it compare to this pack, other than the fact that it has the x trampoline system, and The Angstrom 30 has a rain cover compartment?
Great Pack with tons of features
This is a great pack, best in it's class after looking at others. Includes many of those "small" extras which makes it more handy and usually only found on backpacking packs.
Key strap, multiple pockets, huge main area, separate 2nd pocket, trekking pole straps, pockets on the hip belt, big zipper pulls, etc.
With my 2ltr of water, hardly noticed the pack on my shoulders, transfers more weight to the hip which is much better, especially with my broken collarbone.
Only complaint is that the pocket for the bladder is a bit small, my large platypus 3ltr bladder is a very tight fit.
what is the size of this backpack ?
what is the size of this backpack ?
25 liters or 1525 cubic inches. Most backpacks list the liters in the name of the pack.
1525 cubic inches or 25 liters.
can the waist bell be store or remove?...
can the waist bell be store or remove? Thank you ;]
No. However, it is pretty comfortable. The waist strap actually consists of two straps attached to a single buckle, so it doesn't chafe or cut into you.
I have the Angstrom 30, and it has a stowable waist-belt, not a removable one.
