Small pockets on the hip belt as well as a fleece lined top pocket on the pack make for organizing your small essential a breeze and provides easy access any time you need them. Stretchy water bottle pockets on both sides and haul loops in several locations for attaching bulky rugged items.
The load is incredibly easy to carry thanks to a version of Granite Gear's Vapor Current suspension system, which is arguable the most comfortable on the market. Incredible adjustment allows for a customized fit far beyond that of your average daypack.
After a summer of testing this pack on and off trail, we are simply impressed. From day hikes to commuting to class, everyone that has put this pack on their back has nothing but good things to say. Unlike most packs in this category, you are hard pressed to think of something you'd do differently. There are a few signs of wear, but nothing that would be alarming. I do worry about the stretchy side water bottle pockets. The material seems to be holding up thus far, but when loaded I can see abrasion becoming an issue. That is pure speculation at this point.
