4 out of 4
March 21, 2012
The first thing I notice was the quality of the material and construction. Clearly there was thought put into using tougher materials at stress points. For example, the bottom of the pack uses the heavier duty 900 fabric. The main zipper is also the rugged YKK 10 so you don't have to worry about it breaking. The bag is very adjustable. I adjusted the shoulder straps to my height and it fit well. The straps are good but not great. I wish they used maybe a tougher material on the back; I feel like the fabric might rip after prolong use. Overall the bag is well built and should be a great travel backpack. The only other complaint I have would be the contour of the hipbelt. It did not make 100% contact with my body. This bag is meant for traveling and not hiking, so with that in mind, I would not use this bag for long outdoor hikes. It is good enough for short walking and traveling duties where you have to hop from the airport to a hostel.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value, Cons: Low performance
