Great experience, would recommend.

I got this for a 4-day hike through the alps. It was great. Had all the bells and whistles I needed. Only suggestion or wish that it had was a slightly more robust hip belt. It was decent and tucked away if necessary, but was a bit flabby. That’s my only criticism. Still 5/5

Great 35L Pack

Great pack! Only downside is all the straps are a bit long.

Fantastic pack!

My go to day pack for anything and everything. Deep side pockets. Tons of storage inside. Lots of micro adjustments. Very comfortable fit.

Well designed and comfortable backpack

I've used this backpack on maybe 10 short hikes of about 3-hours each on hilly rocky terrain. No doubt it's a solid pack made for backpackers. Perhaps a little heavy compared to today's UL equipment, but for my tastes I'd rather have a reliable backpack, well thought out design, and excellent materials and construction - this provides everything I need and want in backpack. The features of the pack I like best are the contoured back frame, which fits comfortably in the natural curvature of the spine; and the comfort and adjustability of the shoulder straps. Given that I like the pack as it is, here are a couple of improvements that might be considered as the normal part of design improvement when new versions are released. 1) Bigger external pocket (maybe 50% bigger); 2) Move the low volume chinch straps up a little, so that they can also be used to hold the water bottles inserted in the mesh, 3) webbing loops or fixtures for attaching a lightweight sleeping back to the exterior of the pack; and 4) Maybe a little larger belt pockets. But, as I've already said, I like the pack as-is, so none of these suggestions are anywhere close to dealbreakers.

Perfectly sized day/overnight/backcountry pack

At 35 litres, this is the perfect pack for 90% of my adventures. While some may want a few compartments for storing things, I prefer the ‘black hole’ aspect of simplicity when it comes to packs. I used it today for a split boarding outing and had more than enough room for my avalanche gear as well as extra clothing and self rescue gear. I’m looking forward to putting it through its paces this summer on a bunch of planned overnighters as well as for Search and Rescue.

My Go-To Day Pack!

This backpack is very comfortable and has plenty of room for storage! The materials the pack uses seem very high quality as well 🙂 The only suggested change to the pack would be to have one additional zipper compartment, maybe on the front of the pack, to organize different items within. I usually use the top zipper compartment for my headlamp, knife, and other hardware. I’d like a separate area to put my phone, wallet, and portable battery charger. But all-in-all the value of this backpack holds extremely well! Very happy with it!

My favorite daypack I’ve ever had! I typically change out every 9-12 months. I plan on keeping this pack for a couple years!

Great All-Rounder

I bought this pack to replace my dedicated ski touring pack. I know this is not one of Mountain Hardwear's dedicated ski packs, but the features matched what I was looking for. It can easily accommodate my avalanche gear, external ice axe, and skis in a vertical carry. It's got a light simple frame for structure. When carrying under full load with skis on the back, it's stable and comfortable. It just carries really really well. The zipper pulls work well, even when going around corners on a cold/wet pack. The helmet carry mesh is clean and well thought out. Hip pockets are great for sunnies and snacks. A really good value versatile pack. I'll likely use it all summer as well for long day trips.
