This pack is perfect for medium-length trips (2-4 days) in hot weather. It's fairly light but carries loads very comfortably, and the removable lid/collar expansion gives you some leeway on capacity if you need it, and allows you to cinch it down tight if you don't. Its best feature is its ventilation system; there is a ton of airflow created by its padding structure that makes it great for hot weather conditions.
