Since getting this bag I've put through the ringer and still looks like new. I've taken it rock climbing several times, Its great for it! I could easily attach and comfortably carry all gear. Then I decided to try try a multi day hike. Its small, but i was carry enough gear and supplies to last me 4 days in the catskills. The padding looks thin but it never hurt.
Picked this up as my summer day pack, liked it's low weight and ideal capacity. Used it on a recent March day hike in the ADK. Stuffed it with Campgaz stove, fuel canister, pot, food, extra jacket, etc. Pack held up great. Only slight draw back is shoulder straps should have a little extra padding. They seem thin but not a draw back. Looking forward to using this in the summer.
