Product Review (submitted on August 17, 2010):
Just got back from 2 weeks in Glacier National Park, where my new navy blue Wanderer was my only daypack. I was surprised how well it carried all over those mountain trails. I inserted a folding canoe chair inside the back (to pad it, hold the packs's shape and protect me from pointy things) and that works great. It also held my rain jacket and poncho, sweater, cooking gear (I llke to have soup midway of a long hike), snacks and lunch, all the usual "ten essential" stuff, and camera. With room to spare. The side pockets both held 40-ounce size klean kanteens, which provides a lot of water. With that fairly substantial load, it stayed surprisingly comfortable, AND MUCH COOLER than a large nylon backpack. It's going with my son and me to the BWCA next Summer, that's for sure. Honestly, can't think of a single improvement. Thanks, Duluth Pack.
