Despite the name, this is actually a proper sized 20 liter (1220 inch³) day pack, simple in construction and appearance. A roll-top closure means there are no zippers to fail, and rain doesn't fall into your stuff. All straps, buckles, stitches, and so on are tough as nails, so you can really push yourself through anything, and the pack will be your trusty companion.
The main compartment is simple, with just one zippered pocket on the inside of the flap for valuables and a kangaroo pouch for a hydration bladder or 13.3" laptop. The pack has elastic passages for the hose (or headphone cord) on both sides at the top. Anything else you want to pack separately goes easily on the outside thanks to the PALS webbing: even the carrying straps have PALS for pouches you want to keep really easily accessible, or just for a sternum strap.
When you're not carrying a full load, the flap folds down to a compact size, and side compression straps reduce the bulk further. The volume is there when you need it, but barely noticeable on your back when you don't.
The flap has a 13 x 5 cm (5.1" x 2") velcro base for a name patch or morale stuff.
