I bought this as a present for my daughter and her fiance to use for an emergency kit. I will add things like a first aid kit, leashes and collars, collapsible bowls, rope, flashlights etc. in case she ever has to leave her home quickly due to bad weather, flooding or other disasters. All they would have to do is grab it, gather her pets and leave. I really like the size of the pack as it gives me enough room to add the supplies I think they will need. It's comfortable to wear and the price was great for what I wanted it for. I'm very happy with this purchase. It would be a good pack for all sorts outdoor activities also.
