I bought this pack for the perfect (for me) harness system, and the ultralight weight for a pack with a frame structure. This pack definitely delivers, and is very light and very comfortable. You can wear this pack all day without hardly even knowing you have it. I use it as my day pack, and love it. I think it would be too small to use as a minimalist overnight pack (some may disagree), and would be hard to load some items with the frame in place. But if you took the frame out it may work. While I like the breathable airspace the frame provides for, I think they over did the amount of curvature. The pack sits about 4" or more off my back, and therefore changes your center of gravity more than a day pack should. The breathability this affords is nice, but I think 1-2" would be fine. All in all, its built very rugged, its stylish, it's light, its perfect for me so far. The best day pack I have tried in my 6 years of hiking.
It does not have any fancy organization, or special pockets for a multitude of things. It has a main compartment, and a compartment in the lid I believe (do not currently have it with me). But it has plenty of straps for tools, a hat, sandals, water bottles, hiking poles etc. Can't go wrong.
