I needed a small backpack for a trip to Asia to replace an old worn out Osprey
used as a carry-on for meds, toiletries, small electronics and such, in the smallest size that would fit my carry-on gear. I also wanted something I could use hiking
when I returned home. Because I could not decide on which Marmot
small pack would suit my needs, I ordered both a Cam and a Scree. Both are virtually identical feature-wise, except for the different sizes, and the Cam does not have exterior water bottle holders. Both are quality pieces of equipment with the same layout of small organizer pockets, which differ only in that those in the Cam are smaller. The product descriptions concerning what size electronics will fit into these various pockets are accurate, but don't try to push beyond the recommended size limitations. The water bag hanger is a nice feature, as are the various passageways and anchor points for the water hose. Although I liked the smaller size of the Cam, I returned it and kept the Scree because it was a better fit for my carry-on gear. It was also nice to have the exterior water bottle holders on the Scree. I found the bottle holders to be a good fit for both a store bought bottle of water and my Sawyer liter-sized filtration bottle. The pack held up well through a rough trip in Asia and, except for some stains, came home looking almost new with no punctures, tears, frays, or split seams. I found the shoulder straps particularly comfortable on my 6 foot, 205 pound body. The small front compartment has the most organization and is easy to access. However, if you forget to zip it up fully, you risk having your stuff fall out. The main compartment is deeper and provides more protection to gear in the event of careless closure. Both the Scree and the Cam are quality products that will provide good service.
