Nitro 26 Pack is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack for day hikes Has all you need, I have the black which matches everything and looks sleek. Has the two front snack pockets, has the handy outside pocket in the back to stash your gloves & hat. I use a platypus wide mouth 3L bladder and that fits nicely. When I took the pack off on the summit, I could see moisture on the suspension and my back was not wet. Love the lines zipper compartment on the top for my eyeglasses and phone. No complaints except they should replica it and make a larger one for epic long winter hikes, I would buy it, this one is too small for dark to dark 14 hr winter multiple high peak hikes but is suited for a long or short day hike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect daypack If you're looking for the perfect hiking daypack, this is it. I got tired of cinching and uncinching the drawstring on my previous daypack so I traded it away and looked for a panel loader. I took a chance on the Nitro 26 because there were hardly any reviews when I bought it but I'm glad I did. Pros: When you first pick up the pack you know that it's made to last. The material feels bombproof. After numerous day hikes with the bag, it still looks as if I just took it straight out of the box. One of my favorite features of the pack is the suspension. It has a true internal frame instead of a framesheet. The reACTIV suspension is truly unique. If you do a lot of scrambling, you will notice it more. It moves with your body as you move. I love the attention to detail with this pack. The fleece lined top pocket is perfect for storing sunglasses/phones/etc. I didn't notice that feature until I received the bag, but it screams 'high quality.' Cons (very nitpicky): The placement of the top set of compression straps is a bit high and makes it hard to zip/unzip the main panel quickly, but this is very minor. The hydration pack sleeve is also a bit on the shallow side. My 3L reservoir sticks out the top a bit when filled to 2.5L, but this is not a major issue. Overall: A beautiful bag that is highly functional and fully featured without being 'overdesigned.' If you're on the fence, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Mountain Climbing Pack This pack has lots of space for a day of rock or ice climbing. I can fit my helmet, hardshell jacket, harness, plenty of water, etc. I've used it for mountain climbing in the Ecuadorean Andes and so far it has done a good job. The only thing that I would improve is a better mechanism to attach more firmly your trekking poles/ice axe at the top of the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pack! I have several of these that I use for specific purposes in SAR. Each pack is outfitted with specific rescue gear and is just the right size for my snow rescue and swift water gear. I also have one that I use just specifically for day hiking and snowshoeing. A great pack that fits good and is of great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pack I just got this June 2017, for hiking the mountains of CO. It holds water, lunch, thin puffie, shell jacket and pants, gloves, hat. I was surprised how much it holds! Anytime in CO you need to bring a shell and insulation. It is very light and comfortable. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Nitro 26 Pack is the bomb, comfortably hauls a day's worth of gear, grub and h2o. The Nitro 26 pack fits my needs for day hiking perfectly. The compact design allows for easy bush whacking and bouldering while providing ample space for layers, food, and water. Great product!
