I have used and abused the Kestrel 32 for the last 10 years. It has gone through school, around the world, and on many over-night camping trips with me. I love how the pack has a big simple main compartment that doesn't have the top-pouch thing. It's ideal for stashing and accessing stuff quickly, even a laptop. The integrated rain cover is key as it allows for complete protection from weather you can trust. Unlike waterproof" packs. After putting this pack through more than I imagined it could handle, it has one failing seem and a broken buckle. That's it. I know since osprey has the best product guarantee in the business, they will take care of these small problems. I plan on using this pack for another 10 years at least and recommend it to anyone who needs a solid, versatile day pack.
