Good quality, lightweight packI took this pack on a few day hikes and love it so far. The side straps were great not only for the compression but also for clipping water bottles to secure them. I wish there were more internal pockets but get that the simple design maximizes storage space and also keeps the pack light. The rain cover seems to be big for the pack size but did its job well with mud splashes and with waterfalls. I wasn't sure how much to trust the front shove pocket but ended up finding it convenient for stuffing in a jacket and grabbing it again easily when the temperature changed.

The best for single day hikeI am a huge fan of hiking, in this is a great product for one day hiking. It is very light and very confortable. Any hydration bladder works on it. I think the best accesorie is the pole atatchments. It has a mesh between the bag and the suspension that makes very fresh and not sweaty.

SqueakyLight weight pack was appealing but started using it and it has an annoying squeak that seems to emanate from the frame. Will try to exchange it.

Great Suspension and sizeThis pack is far better for everyday/trail than Ospreys other everyday do everything packs. It has pole attachments, H20 access, hip belt I can attach a pocket too later. The frame is more suitable to everyday, it isn't huge like the Paladin. It can be easily carried day in day out. The downsides; There are no pockets. The is only the main pocket and the sunglass pocket which is awkwardly deep. LIke Ospreys other bags, the sunglass pocket swings around on the inside and is unprotected. The material of the pocket is flimsy. I doubt it could hold a USB battery pack, or GPS unit. The bag material itself is also very flimsy. Osprey seems to equate light with cheap material. The front stuff it pocket isnt made of the stretchy traditional stretch mesh material which I am hugely disappointed by. This bag is not built to last at all. All i see is Osprey trying to stretch every once of profit from this bag. You can fit a small laptop in the hydration sleeve, but you would need to be careful as the sleeve does concave to meet the needs of the frame. Osprey has the best suspensions in the world, i don't know why they have to nickel and dime people with inexpensive materials and no pockets. It really gets old. I don't know if I will keep this bag becuase of the lack of the stretch mesh material on the large front pocket. For a strict day pack, a bag to bring to the pool too, I would recommend this bag. For an over all grab for a day hike, light commuting bag. I guess I would if you don't need anything fancy.
