"great for day hikes and shorter multi pitch climbs"
This is my go to backpack for short day hikes as well as smaller, maybe 4-5 pitch climbs. It has plenty of space for the ten essentials, plus other stuff. The 2 liter hydration bladder that comes with it is great, and i often put it in some of my other packs.
"Great for your average outdoors enthusiast, but not well-suited for larger expeditions."
As far as hydration packs go the Cloud Walker 70 is sort of funky. It holds a decent amount of water which is nice and has a fair amount of storage space, but it's not extremely comfortable. While wearing the pack it feels like the straps are too small for the size of the bag. When compared to other CamelBak products, the Cloud Walker 70 is equally as sturdy and seems like it could take some tough hiking/biking. I am 6' 2'' which may be why the straps feel a little small, but if you are shorter then that it would probably be fine. Overall I recommend this product and give it a thumbs-up
