The bag was also pretty durable, although one of the metal clips on the shoulder strap came off when the strap got caught in an airport x-ray machine (not sure this is really the bag's fault though).
Overall I am quite satisfied, especially for the price. Just keep in mind this is a travel bag--it's great for carrying on your back from hotel to hotel while traveling, but it's not one you would want to be wearing 100% of the time on your trip. (A metal-frame hiking-oriented pack might be better for that purpose.)
when full and zipped into one bag, it is top-heavy, and sticks out way too far behind you. basically, it pulls you backwards, so you must lean forward a bit to feel balanced with your center of gravity. i read a review that mentioned this issue, disregarded it, and now feel it was seriously under-emphasized.
If you intend on putting locks on the zippers note that you can do so but the zipper handles are made of fabric and not metal, so anyone with a pair of scissors could cut it and get in your bag. (However, I never had anything stolen.) Also, there is no way to lock the sunglasses holder on the day pack.
The bag is pretty comfortable IMHO. I fit a small laptop (VAIO TX series with 11.1 inch screen) in the day pack.
If you want a bag that will force you to pack lightly, get this bag. It held up fairly well--i.e. nothing broke. However, after over 20 flights and using this bag every day for the better part of a year, it's showing a good amount of wear and tear. Next time I travel I will get a bag that's just a tiny bit bigger, has metal zipper handles, has mesh pockets on the outside of the daypack. Lastly, I think it would be good to have a bag that has a pull-out waterproof cover; this one doesn't.
All in all, for the money it's a great bag.
The reason I gave this a 4 star is that the main compartment doesn't have any pockets at all.
Regardless I think it is a good bag and looks pretty decent when carrying around.
As previously mentioned, the zipper pulls won't work well with padlocks. I purchased some Hog rings and inserted them in the zippers, so that I could use a lock on the zippers. This cost less than $10 to do.
I have no previous backpacking experience, but I was fairly comfortable wearing this through train stations and while walking to Hostels or wherever, to drop off the main bag.
Although the two bags can be zipped together to form one big bag, I have no Idea why anyone would want to do that. It would make it cumbersome and off balance. The small bag is intended to clip to the front straps of the big bag, so that it is positioned across your chest. Wearing it this way was very comfortable, convenient, and balanced, and also left my hands free.
If this travel bag had any downfalls, it is that the small backpack should have a water bottle pouch, the large backpack should have a couple small compartments,
