This is my second Columbia backpack. The first was a 40L Ridge Runner which I used extensively as a daily backpack carrying items to/from work and for my carry on for international trips. My Ridge Runner lasted (2) years of hard daily use and now my daughter has it. The Endura 50L provides a little more room and has added some great features I did not have before. My wife likes this bag so much it looks like I will have to make a "second" purchase - I either have to get her one or mine will be gone.
I would recommend this product.

Nice colors and material, but not as functional as I'd like...

I was disappointed with this pack. The water bottle holders on the side are virtually useless when the pack is fully loaded. They just don't expand enough to accommodate the water bottle. I would have preferred more outside pockets as well. So really there is just one main pouch to put everything in so you end up digging around for what you want. It's fine for an overnight trip, but that's about it.
I purchased the medium size frame and found that the hip belt as well as the chest strap are all way too long. I've got the hip belt all the way cinched down and it's still too big (and I'm taller than average).
I do not recommend this product.

The pack is great for hiking and camping with its built in very easy to use rain cover. Very packable bag with plenty of room and compression straps that arent as bad as what many reviews may say. The only major problem I found using this pack is when fully loaded with max weight, over long hikes the straps are not nearly as comfortable as many other packs and tend to really dig into your shoulders. I am 6ft with an athletic build and frequently go on pack runs or hiking and found this bag excellent for what I need, so if your not afraid of getting some shoulder digging its a great pack.
I would recommend this product.

Awesome quality pack. Well worth the extra monies. only complaint i have is, with the pack loaded down HEAVY, 40-50-lbs the straps are very uncomfortable. when you get the weight down around 30 or under the pack performs well. you should be very pleased.
I would recommend this product.

Great product - as large a bag as I needed for 6 days out on the road/trail, with ample space for all my clothes, gear, sleeping bag and thermarest pad... also a very well-constructed product and it looks great.
I would recommend this product.
