Cameron Y.wrote a review of Patagonia Nine Trails 28L Backpack on May 23, 2019
I'll start by saying that the quality, design, and comfort are outstanding for a pack of this size. It caries weight very well, and the hip belt is functionally weight bearing (I've been through a few packs where the hip straps were useless).
That being said, this pack confuses me for the following reason: the padding, shoulder straps, suspension, and frame are more akin to what you would see on a 35L+ lightweight backpacking back, however the capacity is minimal. I feel like I could not possibly fit enough into this pack to take full advantage of its weight bearing capabilities.
Overbuilt for a lightweight day pack + too small for an overnight pack = anti-Goldilocks
