For the price, this is a great lightweight day pack. It packs down really small and is lightweight. I pack this in my larger, heavier 50L frame backpack and then use this for day trips once I set up camp. I also pack this in my luggage during work trips so I have a day pack for any hikes I go on. It fits well and is comfortable, but I would suggest limiting your load to 20 lbs or less since it has no frame and has minimal strap padding to keep it lightweight. During my most recent hike with my family, this pack easily held 4 rain jackets, 4 sets of hats and gloves, 2 freeze dried backpacking meals, 2 700 ml titanium cups with 4 oz isobutane fuel canisters, 2 liters of water in the water bottle pouches, and a bunch of other snacks and small pieces of gear. Overall this is a great day pack!
