Great as a small day hike or trail running pack. Holds water, lunch, ten essentials, extra clothing and still has room for a summit treat. External pockets will hold 2 standard liter water bottles or use the hydration pocket. Decent sized pockets on the waist band for compass, snacks, or a phone.
Two small D rings on chest straps to clip on a GPS or camera are a bonus.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for a day pack while I was backpacking. It's light and fit in my backpack without taking up too much space. We actually sent one of our packs out on a mule from the hike, and my wife used this bag packed with water and clothes. It was suprisingly comfortable and fit a bunch more than I thought it would. Great Pack!
I would recommend this product.

Works perfect to put a hydration bladder in and I typically put my rain gear in it or extra layer maybe a few odds and ends. It stretches a lot from original size at first when I saw it i thought it might be to small. Used it on a recent fishing trip and hiked around in the river and at times bending over to cut threw thickly forested area's. I honestly would have forgot i had it on if didn't get thirsty.
I would recommend this product.

This bag is pretty good. The bladder pocket is only unsewn on the narrowish top. This makes it extremely difficult to insert a bladder. For example you can't have a jacket in the bag and insert a 2.5L Platypus with 2L water. You would have to completely unload the bag. Even when bag is empty, loading bladder is a struggle. Need some side velcro or strap or zipper so loading a bladder is possible.
I do not recommend this product.

This is one of MH's larger hydration packs. It has chest and waist belts/buckles and a great deal of storage capacity. It feels like the perfect compromise between a true hydration pack and a standard daypack, without restricting movement.
I am ~ 6'2" and 185 lbs. I am long-ledded/shorter torso, however the M/L fits just right. Call one of the MH's representatives to get guidance on sizing before selecting S/M or M/L.
Great product!
I would recommend this product.

my third Fluid daypack and it's the perfect size for a full-day hiking trip. good dedicated hydration sleeve. not sure what the loop is for above the overload pocket? would like integrated rain cover for all daypacks. overall, a nice pack.
I would recommend this product.
