This review is from: High Sierra Access Backpack (Sports)
I bought this backpack for my tour of Europe. I tour cities in bursts of 2-3 days so this pack has to hold my things for 2-3 days.
1. It has many pockets for all kinds of gadgets or items you may have.
2. The bottle holder is far better than in any previous backpack i have owned. It has a zipper to it so you can tighten the bottle agaist the pack to hold it down.
3. It has a rain cover. I haven't needed to use it yet but im sure that day will come.
4. The laptop padding is good. I have had the pack tip over and fall on the floor. The laptop was protected each time.
5. The pack has padding for your back as well. However, there is a con here that ill explain further down.
6. The pack is spacious and wide enough for my dslr camera bag. This is a big plus for me.
1. The padding for your shoulders and back has a tendency to cover air flow and makes you sweat. The pack is advertised to have good air flow but this is not true in my experience.
2. The wait strap is excessive and unnecessary in my opinion. My pack is never heavy enough to need it.
3. The pack is advertised to be able to hold upto 17in. laptops but i have serious doubts about that. My 15.4in widescreen laptop fits snugly and hangs out of the top of the covering a good bit. The dimensions of my laptop are the following: 14.25" x 10.55" x 1.54"
Overall a very good pack, best i've had yet.
