Field & Stream 35L Internal Frame Pack
I bought this for my son to use in Boy Scout outings and it is a great value. The capacity for overnight trips is somewhat small at 35L, but at my son's current height and weight (5'2" and 75 pounds), it is an appropriate size. When he is not using it, I have been using it for working out- I put 35 pounds in it. The straps are comfortable and it is well made. This backpack does not appear to suffer from the apparent quality problems that users reported on the 65L larger version. I have used it 20-25 times with weight in it and there are no signs of wear. There is a convenient pouch on the right waist band that fits my iPhone. My only criticism is that it seems to be designed for someone smaller than I am- 5'10" and 180. It fits, but I would prefer that it be a bit wider and longer in the torso

Good so far
I just got this pack, only took it on one hike so far but it felt good and held up well. The price was right and the shipping was great, got it in one day.

Great for the price
If you can pick this up for about $50 you really can't loose. It is built well and has plenty of room for 3 days if you pack light. My daughter used it on a week long camp with no problems, but did not haul her backpack or all the food (some was provided at the campsite).
