    The backpack looks great, very light with 7 pockets. I am going to use it to go up 11K feet, so I will let you know how comfortable and durable it was.Having said that, just having it in my hands leads me to two concerns: 1. the shoulder straps are not well padded, so it might not be comfortable to walk with some medium range weight. 2. the outside pockets are spandex so they might tear pretty easily if you put some sizeable things inside.The rest is awesome*** New Review ***Tested the Backpack today And noticed that it came with a mistake in the chest strap. The left strap is reversed, it is set towards the outside instead of the inside. That is a huge bummer. (See pics).***Update - Volcano Trip***So I went up an 11 thousand feet volcano, and the backpack lasted and surpassed the test. I was able to fit all the food, water and extra clothes. The front elastic pocket got a small hole, but nothing unexpected after traveling through all those rocks. The only negative thing is that the chest strap came backwards.
    I got this backpack for a family vacay to North Carolina. We did a few day hikes around the mountains so I wanted a bag that's not really luggage-y to take into the woods. This pack was a whole lot bigger than I thought it would be! I've had packable daypacks before (the typical unzip type) but this one can fit nearly twice as much inside and I strap extra gear to the outside - usually a heavy jacket I don't need anymore. I had an extra backpack frame lying around and I've just checked and it fits super comfortably! They never sell frames with packs like these, but if you get one you can legitimately use this thing like a small through-hiking pack. I'm happy with this pack and will probably use it more often than my Osprey from now on since it's easy to pack into airline baggage.

    It's actually a really good product. The bladder works well, easy to fill, feels quite strong and the mouthpiece works very well with a valve to prevent leaking. The backpack is good, would definitely recommend for people who likes outdoor sports. Very pleased.
    This is my first hydration backpack and I'm loving it. Lightweight, easy to fill and has many pockets to carry other stuff around while hiking. I have taken this on some couples hikes an felt very comfortable with it. Water stays cooler than having them in the water bottle. For day hikes a short hikes it will be very usable.

    I kept hunting for the perfect breast pump bag to no avail. This bag is more practical than any breast pump bag I've seen.The top compartment fits the Spectra S2 pump, tubing, and plug cord; the bottom cooler fits breast milk, 2 large flat ice-bricks, and the flanges connected to the bottles. I also like the laptop sleeve, which prevents me from having to carry multiple bags to work. There is a discreet compartment large enough to hold my small wallet. The material is sort of water repellent, which has made it easy to wipe clean.My baby is 4 1/2 months old, and I have used this since she was 6 weeks old. It has been lugged around airports, the gym, Disney World, conference centers, my office, and more. No damage yet, and it still looks and performs like new.Mommy hack: keep the flanges and bottles assembled in a gallon zipper bag, and 2 flat ice-bricks in a separate gallon zipper bag in the bottom compartment. You can then "sandwich" the breast milk between the 2 flat ice-bricks to ensure it stays cool. This also keeps the cooler compartment clean.12 MONTH UPDATE: Still no snags or tears, still looks brand new!
    I like this backpack. It is a good size, the insulation is decent and space is a good size. I can fit my personal items in the top and a laptop in the back. The side pockets fit my large or small water bottle and the front pocket works for my phone. It also has a nice small padded zipper pocket on top where i put my sunglasses. It is nicely constructed and pretty sturdy. The only flaw in the design is if you do have a laptop in the back zipper, you can't open the cooler section because it folds back and obviously can't bend because of the laptop. Also if you have the top packed with your personal or dry stuff and the cooler is empty (usually you would want to pack your cold stuff last to keep it cold longer) it is hard to put your stuff in because the pack falls over(top heavy), it is soft...you have to try to hold it open with one hand and try to put the stuff in it with the other...I am thinking about putting a lightweight rigid box in the cooler section to maybe help it stand up better when the cooler is empty.

    had this backpack for a few months, but it only sat in the corner. took it to the gym THREE times, everything was fine. noticed the zipper wasn't working because there was a string in the teeth, so i removed the string. low and behold the loose string was the single thread holding the zipper on. looks really nice, until it fell apart.
    I was pleasantly surprised by this backpack. It was comfortable to carry around.I hike the mountains around Phoenix AZ even through the summer months when it's often over 110°f/43°c. Most hydration backpacks have one or both of the following problems: 1- don't hold enough water, 2- don't have big enough straps to carry more water comfortably.I had been settling on a 35L pack. But really, it was too large. I have gone through 6 Liter packs (too small), 12 liter packs (too small), 18 liter packs (big enough but the straps cut into my shoulders). I carry 6L (1.5 gal) of water with me. Two 3L hydration bladders. And some emergency medical supplies, some food. About 20lbs (just shy of 10 kilos) overall. The 35L pack was mostly empty.I found this pack and gave it a try.So, first, it held two 3L bladders. It only had one strap inside to hook a bladder to (in the middle). I sewed two more in just under each shoulder strap.The next day was my weekly hike. I found out that I got better water pressure if I left the hydration bladders loose in the backpack and not supported by the hanging straps. The pack held the weight of the water (about 13.6lbs) and everything else (about 6.5lbs) quite comfortably. Throughout the entire 12 mile hike covering some 3,000 foot plus of elevation changes. The pack was a lot lighter by the end when I only had about 2lbs of water left. But then, with other backpacks, that's when the small straps really start to bother me and I really start to notice that the small straps of other packs are biting into my shoulders. This one was comfortable the whole way through.It does have a pouch inside the main compartment for a hydration bladder. It's fine for a single hydration bladder, but two bladders won't fit inside. Fine for me, I'm not caring anything large, so that main compartment had only the two hydration bladders. The other pockets kept emergency supplies, food, sunscreen. I attached a molle phone case to the side pocket.Overall, I like the pack. I think it'll last for the light to medium use that I'll use it for. Everything seems of good quality, except for the molle webbing. It's very lightweight on my pack. I have 4 other backpacks with molle webbing, and they are all much stiffer webbing than the molle on this pack.

    I've been looking for the perfect backpack for years now. I do a lot of hiking 5-8 miles per day. But I could never find exactly what I was looking for. I own 6 packs and they are all good for different trips, but none are perfect for a 3/4 day trip in the woods. My 50l is way too big. Great for winter camping but just too much pack for the fall. I have a summer pack 30l but it is packed so tight i can't even add a toothpick to it.Finally my Mardingtop Tac arrived in the mail and I have it packed and ready to go for my October 4 dayer coming up.This pack is amazing. I always get caught up between lightweight and practical. I like pockets and pouches and all the ultra light packs have one giant pouch to shove all your gear in. Blah! Nothing worse then digging in your big pack for 10-15 min trying to find your Chapstick that fell to the bottom of your bag because some designer thinks lightweight is better. Finally I have a light pack that is big enough to fit all my gear and it has pockets... 8 pockets and pouches to be exact plus the giant pouch for my bigger gear like hammock, tarp, sleeping bag and under quilt. I guesstimate this bag being about a 40l pack with molle. Yes molle! So I added a water bottle pouch and my big kukuri knife to the outside of the bag. The pack empty is about 2.5 lbs. and fully loaded I am at 27lbs for a cool autumn hike. Perfect!!! Now I can have a lightweight pack with pockets and a method to add extra pouches if needed. I truly am a happy hiker.
    UPDATE: I've had this pack a year now on many strenuous Colorado hikes. This is my hunting pack - I go WAY off the usual trails, often working through dense brush and over and around fallen timber. This pack takes a lot of knocking-around and hasn't shown any sign of fraying, issues with the stitching, etc. I have no doubt it will last many more seasons. My "day pack" is a little overkill - since I hike so far from cell service, trails, etc. and often alone or just with my son, I carry a lot more water, emergency supplies, etc. than most people probably do on day hikes. Last time I weighed out I was pushing 40lbs...Shown here is the pack hung for my next trip, plus some accessories I've found fit well on it. This is one of the few packs I could find that actually has Molle attach points on the BELT, which is very important to me. I have an Admin Pouch and a Storage Pouch that hold my GPS, some quick-access items (a few band-aids, chapstick, screwdrivers, sharpie, knife, flashlight, etc.), windicator, snacks, and so on. The larger of the two pouches is big enough for a turkey box call. This keeps all my "quick access" items close at hand.Shown on the sides are two large "saddle bags". These fit my "wet" weather gear (left side) and my "cold" weather gear (right side). In Colorado the weather can change quickly so this keeps me from having to root around in my bag to find a pair of gloves or raincoat. On one saddlebag I additionally have a large "cell phone holder" that's big enough to hold my battery charger.That's just what's on the outside, saving space inside for clothing, emergency kit, a small folding Coleman "tension" chair, and food. It's a big load, but when you're on your own...My only complaint is that two of the straps have started to squeak, especially when I have it overloaded. A little chapstick helps.This pack easily beats out competitors at four times the price. Highly recommended.--I'm over the moon about this pack. What's not immediately apparent from the pics is a feature I value highly - there are attachment points on the BELT support, coming around to the front. This is incredibly useful for the small items you often want to have handy, but don't want to take off your pack to get. I added a pair of molle-attachment utility pouches, one on each side, and they easily hold all the small items I use regularly while hiking/hunting - turkey call, compass, GPS, cell phone, knife, a few small snacks, etc. The rest of the pack is basically a cavernous stuff-sack, and while I do wish it had one more compartment divider, it works well for the stuff I carry. I also really like the bottom attachment-loop points because the loops are bigger than on a lot of other packs. This makes it easy to lash things onto the bottom of the pack.I wouldn't use this for an Appalachian through-hike, but for 5-10 mile day hikes it's the king, and I'd happily use it on 2-3 day trips as well. Basically, for anything short of wanting a fully framed pack, this is a great choice at a great price.

    All the reasons to buy this great little backpack:(1) Convenient to keep in the luggage for those extra things you bring home.(2) So lightweight, but very sturdy and well made, perfect for lugging around all your "stuff" when at attractions / hiking(3) For reason number 2 above, great to keep 1 in your car / beach bag / tote(4) I recommend picking up a nice neutral color so no one has an excuse not to carry it! (for all those extra's & maybe someone else will carry the extra bag) (Why does everyone hand me their jackets / keys / collectible cups when finished... etc.???) I am not a pack mule... lol... nice thing is no one minds slinging this over their shoulder.(5) So small and compact when in its pouch & yes, I tried putting it back in the pouch myself to see if it would fit & with very little effort was able to repack it (almost) as good as factory compactness.Nice and convenient, I keep 1 in my luggage permanently so I will not forget it.Awesome for movie bag... I will buy their soda and popcorn, but draw the line at the candy... hit the dollar store on the way and have everyone pick out their favorites!!! (I digress... ahem.... yes, this is a great multi-purpose bag that is so convenient & compact when not in use :-)I really rely on honest reviewers, real purchasers, so please click below if this info has helped at all. Thank you and Enjoy!
    I bought several nylon backpacks on Amazon prior to my trip last month, to determine which size or brand that I would like. A few will be returned.The 22L Outlander backpack in purple felt the best and I now use it most days as my purse. I am 5'4" and a bit short-waisted, so standard backpacks are all too long on me. This one is quite comfortable and a good length. The side pockets easily hold my either or both a 12oz or 16oz stainless steel water bottle, or my sunglasses. This pack nicely survived a two-week trip to Europe last month as my purse and daypack, as we traveled by bus and train. It seems quite well-made with perfectly functioning zippers and no fraying on seams. It carried all of my usual "purse" items as well as an extra shirt, socks, snacks, pill organizer, with room to add a few souvenirs. Even though I weighed it down pretty well the straps were still comfortable on my shoulders.The other brand of similar backpacks were not as comfortable on me, and one had annoyingly loud material (I think that was the MCIRCO 20L). The Outlander (22L purple) and Hexin (33L purple) seemed to both be made by the same company since they fit similarly and had the same style and print on the fabric. So, I am keeping them both! When I had more things to carry, I would put the smaller pack inside the larger one. I used the larger one as my carry-on for my flights, and the smaller one as my purse. Both sizes fold back neatly into a little pouch, but frankly, I can't see me ever putting them away. They are so lightweight that they take up practically no space. I did fold the big one a few times and carried it inside the smaller one (so that I would have an extra shopping bag with me), but after a few times I just rolled the extra pack and placed it at the bottom of the pack in use.I also bought an Outlander (33L) in Black for my husband to carry, but he didn't mind the dark purple color. He may have objected if I had wanted him to carry a pink or red one, but the purple is pretty subtle. Both of the larger packs came in handy for sorting our clothes during the trip. One day we even loaded both 33L backpacks with stuff we should not have brought with us (can you say "overpacked"?) and walked to the Amsterdam Post Office to mail home a box of our "stuff" (yeah, we'll just call it stuff, to be nice here). These packs are SO SO handy. I got the impression, at the PO, that mailing home dirty clothes was not uncommon. Doh.Yes this nylon pack is a bit flimsy, but it's so strong and holds so much! For the price, I totally recommend the Outlander (or the Hexin). Buy one in each size. Keep both, or give one away to a friend! Can't go wrong with this product.Disclaimer: I was not given anything free to try. I paid for this product. I like this product and recommend it. (No one ever sends me anything for free. Boo hoo)

    I rarely write reviews, but I definitely had to for this backpack. I absolutely love it! I travel all over the world and for many years I had a Patagonia backpack that I just loved but I wore it out. I needed a new one for a 2 month trip to South America, but didn't have the funds for an expensive one. When I saw the price of this backpack on amazon I thought it was too good to be true. I figured that it was such a good deal, that even if I got it and didn't use it that much it wouldn't be a big deal. Well when it arrived I was extremely impressed. It was great material, perfect size and color. I decided to take it with me on my trip and I'm so glad I did! It came with me on many adventures. I used it as a day pack which was great, but on days I needed to take a lot of stuff it definitely held up to some pretty intense weight as I'm not a light packer lol. I am including some photos from my trip that show all the awesome places it went with me. I HIGHLY recommend this product if you want the same durability and style as companies like North Face and Patagonia, but don't want the high prices. I am moving to Alaska in a week and can't wait to bring it with me on new adventures!
    tl;dr: this backpack is 20L to maximum 25L.Just look at the picture of the backpack next to 6 of 1-gallon (4L) jugs. The backpack is supposed to contain 10 of these jugs. No way, no how. But let's get mathematical on this b.Stated in the description measurements are: 22.8” x 13.4” x 7.9”Let's assume height is correct and concentrate on length and width. Half of the perimeter as stated should be: 13.4 + 7.9 = 21.3”Instead, top measures 16” and bottom measures 17”. Fine, let's use larger bottom measure. So perimeter/2 is: 17” or 80% of 21.3”To calculate actual length and width as 80% of stated: 13.4 x 0.8 = 10.7; 7.9 x 0.8 = 6.3And so actual volume is: 22.8 x 10.7 x 6.3 = 1537 cubic inches or 25.2 Liters (6.7 gallons). And that's assuming the height was really 22.8” which I really doubt and ignoring it measures smaller at the top. But wait, there are 2 expandable mesh pockets on the sides! To me they look to be able to hold 1L each max. Nah, let's go crazy and stick 2L soda bottles in each pocket. They won't fit, will stick out and fall out, but hey, I'm just crazy like that. So, 25+2+2=29L. I spit on that number and add 1L more because reasons! So now it's 30L. NO.WAY.THIS.BACKPACK.IS.40L.My guess is that if this backpack measured the way the description shows, then it would be 40L. But it doesn't and isn't...edit: Adding picture from G4Free representative showing how they measure height of the backpack. See how they had to over-stuff it so it would match description size? How the backpack profusely bulges on the bottom left and less on the bottom right? Ridiculous! As I suspected, the stated height is incorrect too, it is about 18" instead of 22.8"; so the backpack is actually about 20L (18"x10.7"x6.3") :tideedit2: Was asked via email to delete my review for a reward of $23 amazon gift card. I proposed they send me instead improved and true 40L backpack for a re-review. They weren't interested and insisted on me just deleting this review for $23 reward. Such wholesome and honest seller, a beacon of moral integrity and ethical way of conducting business! :2tide

    I'm new to hiking longer distances that require a day pack, and I was looking at the name brand packs in the 20-40L range. I spent an hour one night trying every pack at REI on several times. They all seemed fine and fit well enough, but for $150+ I felt like they should really make me happy when I put one on and none of them did. I should say, I am a male, 5'9" and weight 210 lbs. I'm not skinny and not ginormous either, but I do have love handles. Anyways, this pack fits about the same as the smaller name brand packs. The construction seems to be just as good so far, but I am sure that some of the materials and stitching are probably not as good as the others.I am not using a bladder, but the side pockets take a 32oz Nalgene bottle with no problems. The internal organization pockets are handy as is stash pocket on the outside. The suspension system has worked well to keep my back cool.The pack obviously doesn't have the lifetime warranty or reputation of something like an Osprey, but for roughly 1/3 the price and for someone who is relatively new, not knowing 100% what I wanted, and only hiking a few times a month I thought that it was a good idea. I've logged about 40 miles with it so far and I am still very happy with it.
    This is a neat and tidy pack, a bit heavy for its size, but with a good suspension.However, the slit in the pack through which the bite valve and tube of the drinking bladder are supposed to go is simply too tight for the the bite valve to fit without serious exertion, and, probably, some risk to the bite valve attachment.Every other backpack I own has extra fabric to cover a generous opening, or some other design, and offers no resistance to the valve, and is reasonably weatherproof.The Kailas 30L pack sold on Amazon is better in this regard than the 20L, as the fabric is gathered a bit, and stitched, to make a larger opening, so less force and fiddling are needed to get a bite valve through.I wrote Kailas, and they seem to think that what they have is just fine. It's not, and, with their attitude, it doesn't seem like they'll be fixing this anytime soon. Their suggestion was that I get a different bladder. In fact, I have several bladders, and all their bite valves are either similar or identical.So, anyone seriously planning to be using a pack like this for a hydration system might want to look elsewhere.

    I'm addicted to this thing. I can wear it ANYWHERE - back home on day hikes or trail runs in the West, and all around my current home, NYC. It fits two full Nalgene bottles in the side pockets, and to combat the water bottle falling out problem folks talked about, I just clip the bottles into the side clips through the loops on the lids. This backback fits my 13 inch Macbook Pro, a book, and a light jacket with no problem. It's small, but packs more than I expected! Great front pocket with lots of compartments. My husband and I each have one, and we love them!
    Many things about this pack are terrific -- the light color (terrific for the tropical climate in which I'm living), the quality of construction, the insulation for keeping beverages cool. But the fit is absolutely bizarre. Speaking as someone who has used backpacks, both for work and technical climbing, for 35+ years, the fit of this pack is exceptionally odd. The crosspiece on the neck digs into the spine (base of the neck) in a way I have never experienced and is not about my body type or gender (as I've been fitted successfully for a variety of packs intended for both women and men). I've decided that it's too expensive to return this pack (I'm living in Asia), so I'm going to cut out that crosspiece, seal it with duct tape (the Alaskan solution for every problem), and see if the pack will be serviceable for day hikes.
