great for a weekend get away
April 24, 2011
I just purchased this pack as a every day back to carry things back and forth to work. This past weekend I put it to the test on a weekend trip. I was able to pack the necessities of the weekend (change of clothes, toiletries, a book for the plane) without any difficulty. The full pack was comfortable to carry. All items were easy to access. The full pack fit easily in the overhead. Also works well for lugging things back and forth to the office.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, well thought out

I bought this as a pack for school. It has more than enough room for all my books. It has a nice little organizer for pens, iPod, phone, etc in the front pocket. It also has a nice soft lined pocket for sunglasses. The only thing I don't like is the small pocket at the bottom of the main compartment. Otherwise a perfect bagPros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
I LOVE this bag!

I usually a backpack instead of a purse, since I often have a laptop, notebook, extra sweater, and various office supplies with me. This bag holds it all, and it somehow makes it feel lighter. All the pockets, especially, are nice. Now that I have it organized and know what goes where each time, I can find everything immediately. I just came back onto Altrec so I could purchase another to use as a diaper bag.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

I have used this backpack as a school bag and for traveling. It has been easy to take on to planes. When I carry it around all day at school it does not make my back or shoulders hurt because of the pads on the straps. It holds all that I need it to and has two big compartments to keep everything organized. Would definitely recommend this purchase.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Bought the chacabuco pack for a week long trip this past summer. It has served as the perfect carry on for many cross country flights. The padded shoulder straps are very comfortable, made it easy to navigate the airports keeping my hands free. The pack is well designed with plenty of extra compartments which made it easy to distribute weight evenly. Love the fleece lined pocket at the top - easy access and safe storage for the iPhone & iPod. My 15" Laptop fit perfectly in the padded storage area. This is definitely the most comfortable, efficient and attractive backpack that I have owned.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, easy to distribute weight comfortable
