My original review ended up as a comment on the other post. I want to make sure it gets my 5 stars. There is good organization and use for all its pockets. Many different straps you can adjust for a comfortable fit. The NVIS does allow some airflow, however in the summer it can still get a little sweaty as expected.
I originaly got this for a day pack, but have since began using it as an ultralight overnight pack in the desert. In the main compartment I can store a neoair sleeping pad, jetboil, small quilt and a few pounds of food with room to spare. the small compartment fits my flashlight, first aid kit and personal items, compass etc. The middle open air compartment stretches out and is big enouph for even my small MSR 2 man tent (3lbs). I know its not the intended use, but it does hold up well. With 3L of water it comes out to 20 lbs. and dosent seem to be to much for it.
On day hikes its a little more room than i need in warm weather but sinches down comfortably. My wife uses the outside pocket to store water bottles, camera and the loops for hiking poles for me to carry and she can get to them anytime without stopping.
Scored the 2009 on SAC for my 18 year old son and my boyfriend bought a new one to replace his old Rim Runner. First of all, you cannot go wrong with the Camelbak bladders. While our version (2009) has the older bladders, the new bladders are even more awesome. Changing hoses WAS a real task but they have fixed that. Camelbak has also improved the drying process.
As for the pack, there are several features I admire about this model. I love the internal sunglasses pocket. It is soft and really keeps those important things (glasses, cell phone) safe. The main compartment is roomy enough for several clothing items such as fleece, waterproof outer, etc. Great organizers in slim spaces on the external front pockets. The material is tough and stands up to weather and abuse.
Seriously if you are considering a solid day pack - get this one. It is also very adjustable and ours has been on every kind of frame (skinny to large)
If you have a short torso, I would recommend a woman's Camelbak instead.
Bought this a year ago to replace an older Camelbak model. I was looking for a good daypack/hydration pack that was lightweight but most importantly, had good ventilation along the back. There's nothing worse than having a hot pack sticking to your back as you're hiking along, am I right? The NVIS ventilated back panel is awesome. The pack is comfy as hell when full and air flows freely between the pack and my back. So far the pack has proved to be extremely durable, even after a slide down a scree field, there are no tears/rips/frays anywhere on the pack. I love it!
