Awesome little pack (Review by Canoehead)

This is a great little day-pack. It's the perfect size to fit everything you need for a full day. The hip belt provides good support and there is lots of room in the top pocket for things you need often.

The only downside to this pack is it would have been a bit nicer if there was an external pocket on it to fit a small water bottle.

Best lightweight summit pack (Review by Liz)

After doing a lot of research, I bought this great little pack for a 5 night backpacking trip and 14er summit in the Southern Sierras this August. Money well spent. Unlike a lot of other lightweights, this one has a relatively broad comfortable hip belt that takes some load off the shoulders and makes the pack feel very secure while scrambling up rock. Hipbelt even has a couple of small zippered mesh pockets for things like chapstick. Appreciate the external loops for stowing trekking poles. The external straps are great for drying spare socks, stashing a jacket, etc. Was able to roll the pack quite tightly (top to bottom) to pack in my full backpack between camps. Foam framesheet can be removed for additional weight savings, but I wouldn't -- pack becomes too unstable. Overall, a great design, especially if you're shaving ounces but still want your back and neck to feel good at the end of the day. Like this pack so much that I use it for all my day hikes back home as well.

Well-designed must have (Review by Epic Mountaineer)

This is a very well-built pack which serves me double-duty as both an adventure race type of bag and a minimalist overnight bag (in warm weather: bivvy, food, small pad, hydration bladder). Copious loops. Hip belt is very comfortable.

Best lightweight day pack (Review by GOLWLAX)

I bought this pack to use as a summit bag on overnight trips. It's been great so far it is light weight and very durable. One thing I was happy about was all of the attachment points on the pack. There is a column of loops going down the front and loops to put tracking poles also. There is a good size pocket on the lid along with a pocket on each side of the hip belt. The compression straps on the pack are great they are helpful for compressing gear and securing gear to the outside of the pack. All in all it is a great pack and well worth the extra weight on overnight hikes.

Excellent Pack (Review by Andy)

I have used this pack quite a bit now, and would definitely recommend it. It is very small and lightweight, but still able to hold the essentials. During a recent trip to the Philippines, I loaded this up with enough for my daily ramblings: food, cash, rain jacket, water bottle, steripen, map, etc and still had room for a few miscellaneous items. One word of caution: it is easy to overload and no longer feels as comfortable. User discretion is advised. When loaded properly, this is very comfortable.

I have been taking this with me back packing, and this makes a great summit/day bag for once you get to camp. Bottom line: great little bag, and I use it even more than I thought I would.

go light go fast (Review by teleski)

I have now used this pack several times backcountry skiing. It is able to hold all I need for a big day, shovel probe repair kit extra layer skins and food and water. It is far lighter than my old ski pack which I love. If there were a secure sleeve to hold a shovel handle and probe that would sure make packing it easier and would allow for that extra piece of gear, but I also believe that if you have the room you will fill it so great job. I can't wait to light fast and long this summer. Very impressed wight he weight, I have gotten into the traveling light, and this lives up to expectations.

Great lightweight pack (Review by Blake)

I will be using this pack for short climbs in Glacier National Park were I need to carry just the essentials. It is well built and fits well. I appreciate all the extra gear tie downs and zippered belt pocket as well.
