Love it!

Awesome pack. Very light. I thought that I'd miss the lack of a back panel or other structure, but I don't. And the side bottle pockets are the best I've seen (huge). I like hiking with it, and traveling. The light weight and compressibility make it a great travel pack.

Great design but need more than one size.

I think this is an awesome all around day pack. I can easily carry all my day essentials and a camera with tripod in one of the side pockets where a water bottle would normally go. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because one size for all doesn't work for me. I am not that tall (6' with short torso and long legs) and the pack is a little small for me. I wish they made a bigger size. The waist belt is too high and I had to move the sternum strap to the lowest rung on the shoulder straps so it wasn't up in my neck. Other than that everything about the pack is great. Works well as an airline carry on too.
