I'm trying to lighten my load when walking when the weather suits, so I thought I'd try this.
It takes a 3L bladder ok. and has a surprising amount of space. The tapering at the top give me more freedom of arm movement and is reasonably comfortable fully loaded. Built in rain cover that fits with press studs is the best I've ever seen.
The back vertical zip opens an expandable pouch which is very useful.
My only down side are things like the shoulder straps are a bit flimsy, let's see how it lasts.

Bought this for a week's hiking in the French Alps and was delighted with it. Great value with raincover included, emergency whistle built into sternum strap fastening, hydration system and perfect capacity for day hikes in decent weather (fits light raingear/windbreaker, extra layers, food and extra water, maps, sunscreen, hat etc).

I bought this little rucksack for doing the 3 peak challenge recently as I needed a smaller pack with lots all the features of my bigger rucksack. This was one of the only ones I found that ticked all my boxes. It did the job great. Just big enough for the essentials of a fast Nevis ascent, and small enough to be light and compact. It hugs your back well so doesn't bounce about too much when you're moving fast over rough terrain.
It's only drawback was that there's no frame, and so it tends to lie in a heap when you take it off, but that's not that big a deal.
Overall I'm very pleased with it and I'm looking forward to using it again.
