Amazon reviewer says "This is a great bag for the money. The bottom of the bag opens up and allows for easy access to items at the bottom of the bag (very important, as this is a top loading bag). There are handy compartments on the top and sides of the bag as well, so it becomes a little easier to organize your gear."Amazon reviewer says "This backpack is very light and fits a everything I need for a day hike, snacks, lunch, drinks and first aid supplies. I am not an expert in hiking gear but I would say if you need a cheap backpack that can hold your stuff for a day, this one does the job."Amazon reviewer says "This pack is absolutely awesome. I have 2 other packs that I use for hiking however they lack the storage for my phone, credit cards, lip balm & extra food and drinks. This one has a large inner pocket and I can carry at least 3 or 4 small gatorades for those extra long hikes. "Amazon reviewer says "This is a great pack. The best thing you can say about a backpack is "I forgot I was wearing it." Literally ... as I was thinking about my review after a four day, 30 mile trek down 2000' to Havasupai Falls, AZ...great padded straps was very comfortable."Amazon reviewer says "This backpack got me through a fairly intense hiking... I carried it on my back for about 12 hours one day, and I have to say it was pretty darn comfortable. Carried like 5 powerade bottles, a spare water bottle, a camera, pants, and a hoodie, with plenty of room to spare"Amazon reviewer says "The backpack is made out of waterproof material but then it looks like the different compartments are also made out of waterproof material, so I can put my muddy, dirty kayaking shoes in the front..it's wonderfully comfortable, great padding and the straps are adjustable so they'll fit a variety of people"Amazon reviewer says "You cannot go wrong with this bag!! Way cheaper than the big name brands... My REI down sleeping bag fits in the sleeping bag compartment. The adjustable torso deal is a great feature."Amazon reviewer says "This is a very comfy backpack for hiking. Affordable that comes with perfect design. It has enough pockets for storage space, zippers are very smooth, material use is good"
