Got this at our local mountaineering shop for my daughter, as a step-up to a proper pack for longer excursions. She found it comfortable for 10-mile days, and loaded to about 35 lbs she didn't have any issues at all jumping and navigating technical trails. This pack has a cavernous main compartment, with a removable divider between the bottom and top, and lots of options for adjusting, cinching, tightening or expanding the various parts of the pack. In many ways a very simple pack, it has enough pockets to keep items organized while maintaining a lot of space for gear. Best part for me is that this can swallow up a full size Bear Vault lengthwise inside the pack, through the bottom access of the main compartment. We were so impressed with this pack that I decided to get myself the men's version, the Volt 75, which is almost identical but slightly bigger.
