What is the logic of buying pack of certain volume and then strapping 5 addon pockets on it? I hiked like that too, then just went back from 35 to 50l rolltop that allows me to carry everything and food for 10 days inside.
It looks good though, no damage besides slightly abraded looks.
I would guess versatility. Big trip, short trip, daywalk. All my gear goes in my pack but I opt for a smaller pack for day walks. I've not been a big day walker in the past.
