Jansport Solstice 33 daypack

I got this pack because I wanted a decent day pack for short trips, carrying gear to work, and just an all-around pack. I saw this on campmor and got it. I have been very impressed so far. I've used it for everything from camping, hiking, taking gear to work, etc. The quality is great so far. Nothing is wearing out or riping and the features are awesome as well.:
1- Dual density foam "S" curved shoulder straps which are very comfy. The adjustments for them are easy to use. Throw on the pack, grab the straps and pull down and it's cinched up. There is also a sternum strap and waist belt, but i have yet to use them as the shoulder straps have been good enough so far.
2- Padded back with mesh for better ventilation.
3- Hydration sleeve in the back pouch with a "loft" for holding a cd payer or small items. There is a hole to thread the hydration tube or earphones through (the blue "H2O" writing on the right picture).
4- Made of 400 denier double ripstop/400 denier pack cloth/840 denier ballistic bottom
5- Side compression straps
6- 5 pockets total (organiser pocket has fleece lined sunglass pocket and 2 smaller pockets).
7- 2 side pockets to hold a quart size bottle each.
8- Watertight zippers with reflective zipper pulls.
9- ice axe loop.
For the money I paid for this pack I am very happy with it and I'm positive it will suit me for some time. The quality is outstanding and the features are awesome, yet, not too complicated.
