I use this product primarily to carry books and other gear at university. The load usually goes between 20 lbs on a light day and 40 to 50 lbs on a rough day. I also had the opportunity to go on a 5 day trip staying in a hostel. It's perfect for everyday use, but the space is limited if you plan on going camping for more than 2 days. Unless you are an ultralight survivalist camper, this is not recommended for multi-day trips. As for carrying heavy loads, my last backpack had no frame and caused me sever back pain. Within a week of using this backpack the pain was gone and has never returned.
