Rated 4 out of 5 by catfish0110 great item, light and allot of cargo area
I use this product for day hikes, mining, and trips to the beach. I like the way it can be used as a duffel bag as well. This was my first internal frame and feels great to carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCLARK Top Quality & Spacious
Comfortable to carry gear. Spacious.
Just a tad difficult to pull water bottle - a tad too far back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jrw@dicks Excellent full-featured product
This backpack is, first and foremost, a high quality backpack with a load bearing hip belt (not just a puny waist strap), shoulder straps and a sternum strap with everything fully adjustable. Included were helpful instructions about fitting the backpack to your frame and loading guidelines.
My initial test included most of the below except a full sized laptop in a carrying case in lieu of the netbook and loaded to about 30 pounds.
I use it for daily commuting including a 2.25 mile walk home after work comfortably carrying 20 - 25 pounds. This includes a poncho, rain suit and fanny pack for use during the day, rain coat for the backpack, a fairly large lunch pack, a change of shoes and socks, a netbook in a carrying case, a security lock for the netbook, various electronic parts (mouse, chargers, cables, etc.), a jacket (packed instead of worn on the trip home) plus everything I used to carry in my pockets (wallet, keys, change, etc.) - and everything fits inside the backpack - easily large enough to get the job done! Plus, conveniently, there is a fairly large zippered, top pocket where I keep items that need fast and easy access.
