I have been know to have a lot of packs I use mostly for day hiking. Tried this packlast Saturday for the first time. I love a pack with pockets in an effort to keep my self organized. And this pack has just that. The fit was great. We did a hike in Canyonlands. About 12 miles. The pack felt great!. It carried the weight well and I did not have sore shoulders. Nor did I feel like I had to keep adjusting the pack for comfort. I think I have found the end to purchasing new packs. So sad. But hey. I don't think I can find a pack that will beat this one.
