    "Perfect size! Great for hiking! #sweepstakes...I use the product while hiking. It has worked great. It is nice to be able to drink water without stopping to get out a water bottle. ...If you don't know the size, 8 liters may seem small, like a child's pack, but it should have the room you need to carry the Ten Essentials for a day hike. It is lightweight yet ruggedly made and should last a while of regular use."
