Carry-on

(1/76)

"That's my least favorite thing about it. However, it's a perfect size for carryon. I also like the fact that the shoulder and hip straps can be zipped away to make it like a duffel bag. It's very sleek and durable"

Comfort

(1/35)

"Just right size for my needs for traveling,I always take it carry on,have not checked it traveling Asia on 6-8wk trips, I just pack what I need,don't purchase the beautiful junk much anymore, but made room for 1kg of black peppercorns from Malaysia on way home one trip."

Strap

(1/25)

"I think the biggest plus are the internal compression straps. This makes it possible to pack so much more than you would think. I have the S/M which is technically only 38 liters but I can tell you I haven't missed those last two liters at all. The hip strap is also vital for when the pack becomes really full but it works like a dream"

Laptop

(1/21)

"The only complaint is that the laptop pouch is not heavily padded, and just seems as though it may bend the laptop if the bag were to be too full."

Hiking

(1/15)

"I got this pack to take across Europe on a 6 week backpacking trip. I love the way everything fits into, the fit, and the durability. My only suggestion for the company itself is to mix up the color schemes. I know this is a minut factor, but for me if I'm buying something at this price point that will be on my back daily, style is an added bonus! I think introducing new color schemes would be good for business!"

Compartment

(1/14)

"I wanted a bag with a separate compartment for my laptop to make it easy to remove for airport screening. I also wanted a good chest and hip belt system that was easy to protect on the plane. I also wanted a front loading bag with full access. This bag has all these features plus Ospreys stellar craftsmanship and guarantee"

Zipper

(1/13)

"One of the best things I like about this backpack is the eyelets on the zippers. These are perfect for a lock which I use all the time. It's a great deterrent when staying in hostels also, although I've never had a problem."

Commute

(1/4)

"In summary: this pack has awesome look, enough for my needs, looks very sturdy. The harness system is very comfortable. It's defintely not designed for a long day hike, but it's doing its job for a short walk between airport terminals and gates. This pack can fit most of aircraft overhead bin, even in an ATR 600"
