This pack was a major upgrade from my enormous top-loading Lowe pack. Its the right size for a long weekend, but I've used it for trips up to a week. It's a super-light pack, straps in all the right places, and the usual features you want in a basic pack: side pockets, hydration compatible, bottom compartment for dirty shoes, etc. It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles you'd want for traveling (in particular a detachable daypack--why all bags don't have this is beyond me.)
All in all, it's a great deal and I like it better than the Osprey and Lowe packs I've used in the past.
I had a hard time deciding between this and the 55, but went with the smaller one for overnights. Lightweight and comfortable....but still a little small for my taste. Go with the 55 for anything more than a couple of days.
