From my review at Amazon

As with all Maxpedition packs, the Condor II offers top notch quality, expandability and quality workmanship.

The pack is a top loader, so you can cram in your gear until its full, stomp on the top, then cram some more.

The bottom of the pack has lash points so you can attach a bed roll or sleeping bag. I used a couple of nylon straps and attached a 32 degree sleeping bag to the bottom.

The pack is covered with PALS (ladder system) to attach MOLLE or ALICE equipment all over it. I have the Maxpedition map and GPS case attached to the small outside pouch. While on a hiking trip, I can lay the pack on the ground, open the map case, get the GPS out, drink from the water bladder and never have to open the main compartments of the pack.

The compression straps work well for keeping the pack slim, and for lashing a tri-pod stool to the side of the pack.

I see no reason why this pack can not be used for an over night pack or even a 2 day pack. The main compartment is big enough to carry extra clothing, one man tent, MREs, hammock, rain poncho, poncho liner, tent stakes. While the other compartments are big enough to carry a first aid kit, flashlights, GPS, topo maps, map compass, water filter,, and other odds and ends.

The water bladder compartment is big enough to fit a 2 quart bladder and have plenty of room left over.

The shoulder straps have plenty of padding.

Overall, this is a well built, well designed pack that I highly recommend.
