Bought this for winter weekend camping with my son who is too small to carry his fair share! The pack is light , easy to pack, stable, and supremely comfortable. The stretchy mesh outer pockets work really well, and there is plenty of stowage in these and the capacious lid pockets which give easy access to on the go stuff. The hip belt pockets are big enough for a compact camera and a whole pack of sundried bananas (not available from montane).
