I used this backpack for a 3-week trek/trip all across Japan, doing a lot of filming along the way. I didn't want to get something too big (like a 90L) because that would just be too much - I wanted to pack light but have enough room for everything.
- Perfect size (as long as you pack light)
- Felt great to wear. Although some of my stuff (hard drives, computer equipment, etc) was heavy, the bag did a good job making heavy things as light as possible
- Great quality materials. Everything feels thick, solid, and like it'll last a long long time.
- The daypack was great for when I wanted to put most of my stuff in a locker and then walk around with just my camera equipment. Most of the time I kept it empty unless I was using only the daypack, though, since filling both made things a bit heavy (and made things stick out a bit too much behind you).
- Just the right number of pockets. I'm not a fan of having too many pockets - this one had just the right amount, I think. Too many pockets means too many zippers which means too much complication. This was a good mix. Nice and simple, and great spaces when there were spaces to put things in.
- Awesome shape. Get the Eagle Creek packing cubes with this, they fit perfectly. I got a double size packing cube, a regular sized, and a half size. That fit perfect, with a little room left over in the main bag. I was putting packing cubes inside packing cubes too, and it was perfect. Really helps organize and keep things where they're supposed to be, making it easier to carry the bag.
As long as you're planning to pack light, you can't go wrong with this bag. I wouldn't recommend it if you are planning on bringing more than a few sets of clothes, or if you need to carry additional equipment (like a tent, a water purifier, etc), but if you're just traveling around and won't be camping (much), this backpack is definitely one of the best.
