I got a Camelback Blowfish for Christmas and it was a lot like a pack that I already had so with permission from the wife I exchanged it for a Octane XC. It only has 3 small pockets,one in the top flap and two in the hip belt. It also has a 70oz bladder. It's a very bare bones pack. I have enough room to put my first aid stuff in the top flap pocket,some snacks in one hip pocket and multi tool spare parts in the other. I put a spare tube and my pump in the big pocket that also holds the bladder. This is by far the most comfortable pack I have ever used and it stays put on my back better than any of my other packs. I'll give this pack 2 thumbs up.
