Outstanding value

I've owned this 30 liter pack for a little while and can honestly say it's an outstanding value. The pack was professionally designed with the day hiker/climber/snowshoer/x-country skier in mind. It has 2 sets of compression straps, 2 sets of daisy chains, 2 ice axe loops, 2 lower pockets which will securely hold 2 liter HDPE nalgene bottles, a lid with shock cords to strap down jackets, fleece, hats, etc. The internal frame is composed of a single aluminum stay, and there is a pouch and securing loop for a 2 liter hydration pack. The pack also has load levers, stabilizer straps, and a fully adjustable sternum strap. The shoulder straps have a clip for securing a hydration tube, and the hip belt has 2 nice pockets for valuables, etc. The mesh covered foam back keeps you relatively cool on hot hikes and very comfortable to wear. The pack is comfortable and stable even with loads of 20+ pounds.

My only gripe is the pack is a top loader without any means to access things inside as the sole zipped pocket is external only. Still...an excellent pack!

About as good as it gets.

First of all, it is 38 oz not 28. It is not the first time I have seen Campmor do this kind of thing.
Still this backpack is a keeper. The suspension is built for heavy weight and hipbelt is pretty impressive. 20 pounds feels featherlight and I am guessing 30-35 might alright. The design is very functional and the materials used are heavy. The only downside is stitching quality. While the pack is built out of heavy materials I feel like the stitching might be the problem in the long term (particularly if you want to hang skies or snow shoes on it). It does have a life time warranty.

But in short, this is ideal backpack for long day hikes (where you have to carry a lot of water or maybe some heavy gear). For the price, it is a steal. If you are looking for something bigger, salomon sky 38 is also awesome (unfortunately, it only comes in one size, which fits people with short torso).

Nice pack with some shortcomings.

I received this as a replacement from another model Outdoor Products pack that the shoulder straps had failed on. The quality is much better on this model. My big gripe is the main compartment access (you should know, I'm not a big fan of top loaders). Main access is through a zippered opening at the top, and while the bag seems roomy, the opening is rather constricted, making it difficult to pack and unpack. The side vertical access is hidden behind the left side pocket, and unless you know what you are reaching for, is mostly useless. The waist belt pouches (2) are a real nice touch and work well. The elastic strap for storage on top is a little weak ( I replaced it with paracord). Overall a nice pack for day hiking or skiing. I have even ran with it on and it rode real well. You'd really have to cram to get a multi-day trip in it.

Great day pack

This backpack is great for a day hike or overnight trip. Could be used for a multiway hike if your a very light packer. There are plenty of straps to secure your load and make it rest peacefully on your back with no movement. Surprisingly the pockets on the waist belt are fairly large and very useful. There is also a zipper pocket along the face of the pack great for stuffing your rain jacket into. Some bungees on the pack lid are a nice touch for last minute add ons or to throw your tent footprint or a good book somewhere quickly accessible.

Overall a fantastic day bag. Great price and does its job well

Good, but not great

The best thing about this bag is the pockets on the waist belt. They are large enough for storing commonly used gear. I like the size of the bag and the fact that is has two compression straps for eash side to stabilize your load. It has enough pockets for strage and organization. It does weigh a bit more than it really needs to, but hopefully that means the materials will hold up. My only problem is the shoulder straps. They are only adequate and could be improved with better padding. The price is certainly right for a pack with the features and size of this one.

Great daypack for my son.

I bought this for my 11 year old son to use as a daypack for Boy Scout summer camp in Colorado. (Actually I bought it for me, but he took it.) Main reason I bought it was because it was hydration bladder compatible. The pack worked great, absorbed some abuse, but responded very well. I like the extra pockets on the hip belt. My only minor complaint is that the top flap opens in a circle around the top and not down the side, so the opening isn't huge. All in all we were very happy with it and would definitely buy it again.

Makes a good disaster bag.

This bag gets used as a disaster ready bag. Being in the Oklahoma City area lands us to severe weather patterns. I keep this bag loaded with emergency supplies. It packed easy for what I needed and it's comfy to wear. With enough supplies for my little family to make it a day, it still has room to spare. It's made from the same material as Outdoors upper end packs and all of mine have held up well.

This would make an excellent day pack. It has limited space but a summer bag and 1man pack tent would fit nicely inside.

It was so nice that my hubby got one too

I bought the pack to use dayhiking. It's big enough to hold spare clothing, snacks, my hydration pack, and much more. The frame is surprisingly sturdy and comfortable for a daypack. I like it so much that I've been wondering if they make a larger size to take on longer backpacking trips.

I've only found two minor downsides. The hydration port is on the left, while I normally keep my tube on the right. And the top opening is just a little small, with a zipper that is just a little balky. Neither are deal breakers for me.

Best for Price Point

Very impressed with this pack. I bought 2.
Highly water resistant and thick fabric. Feels like a polyurethane coated thick ripstop nylon. I will be using this as my only pack on my next multi-month trip.
Only downside, is I generally fit into ultralight packing and this bag, while very lightweight, is a little heftier due to the waterproofing, but still light enough. Has stood up to a fair bit of abuse and should do so for a long time to come.

You will be impressed with the quality at this price.

Love it times two

I liked the first one I bought so much I got a second, that way I can load according to various tasks/errands. I find the waist belt pockets to be set back a little too far to make it comfortable or easy to use them without taking the pack off, and one or two small pockets on the shoulder straps would make it perfect. It is great for street hiking and day hikes on the trail. I may get a third to load as an emergency or Bug Out Bag.

Negative Reviews:

Don't buy it

This is a great bag. I was happy with it when it arrived, and my son enjoyed getting it as a gift. The huge disappointment was when my daughter came home with the exact same backpack that she purchased locally for half the price. Disappointed in Campmor and the markup of this product. I thought I was getting a unique product. Will probably return mine.

I love everything except,,,

I like everything except the only way to get in and out of this pack is an almost worthless side access zipper, and a very limited top zipper. The pack is very comfortable, the waste strap is great, and it has enough room for my stuff, but I just can't get it out. I still use this pack often for smaller stuff, I just wish the zippers would zip further down so I could get to items without unloading them one by one, when the pack was fully loaded.
Troy at Campmor on 01/01/2014

Great for the price

Great for the price. We own 2 of these now. The only issue I have with this daypack is the top compartment zipper is difficult to operate with one hand and snags easily.
Sean at Campmor on 07/07/2012

too many do-dads

The waist pockets are in the way for normal arm movement, they had to be removed.

Average Pack

Nice Pack, hard to load. Nice otherwise
