Even when you fill it up fully, it feels very light and the chest/waist straps are great for that extra padded support and stability. It never felt heavy or awkward. All I had to do was get used to my larger body profile so that I wasn't knocking stuff over in souvenir shops when I walk down cramped aisles, lol.
This backpack is not meant to carry gear, but I've managed to successfully squeeze in massive sleeping bags, hiking equipment, tents, and lots of camping gear into this guy too. It's surprisingly durable and the zippers don't break under intense tension. The fabric also is super sturdy and doesn't snap or tear when fully stretched out.
All in all, this is EXCELLENT value for a two-week backpacking trip. If you're looking for extended longer-term travel for 2-3 months, you might want to go with the Farpoint 70L one instead.
I took this bag for one week to Germany and Poland. I also checked a bag because this was for a work trip, so in this bag i carried the following items and still had space to spare. This bag was perfect for quick switch between travel backpack and office satchel. It was able to hold very large bottles of water. The extra straps inside to tighten down and on the outside made it easier to reduce the bag profile. If you watch the youtube videos on this please note it's what they say it is. Your success will come on how you organize it. With that being said, there are not a lot of pockets etc.. In the second picket there is a zipper mesh pocket, and a tablet/laptop sleeve. However if you have pack like i listed below it would be wise to have ziploc bags for different groups of items. It helps keep it organized.
Now for mobility. I pulled two hail Mary runs on my return trip home. And when i say runs, i mean full sprint dodging babies and the elderly - jumping luggage and chairs. In both Munich and Chicago i literally grabbed the shoulder straps, the chest strap, and waist strap and pulled them tight. And it was a flawless run, with no fear of the bag falling off or interfering with my ability to run.

We moved from cooler weather in Paris and Salzburg to warmer weather in Venice and Rome, necessitating a wide ranging wardrobe. Using Eagle Creek packing cubes, I was able to pack the following in my pack: a pair of jeans, a medium length skirt, two knee length skirts, a pair of gym weight capris, four tees, a pair of PJs, five pairs of underwear, one bra, two pairs of socks, a car coat length heavy hooded LL Bean raincoat, a pair of Toms, two toiletry bags (a TSA one and another), a small make up bag, a bag with ten medication bottles, a large heavy plastic zip top envelope with all travel documents and tickets, and a small bag of misc necessities (small USB cords, small caribiners, etc.). The bag weighed about 15 lbs packed and I had plenty of room left. On the return trip, I easily found room for a very well bubble wrapped small ceramic gift item, a t-shirt, and a boxed shot glass. I could certainly have brought more home. My six foot tall husband packed, using cubes, a pair of jeans, three pairs of cargo shorts, PJ pants, four tees, underwear, undershirts, a raincoat, a pair of shoes, his dopp kit + TSA bag, Kindle, iTouch, charging cords, plug adapter kit, and had room to spare. His packed bag weighed 17 lbs.
Converting these bags from backpacks to duffles, to take on and off planes and some trains, was a breeze. The back panel unzips and rolls down, securing with Velcro at the bottom and releasing the straps. In reverse, just separate the Velcro, tuck the straps and zip up. The process is very fast and very easy and we found the bags easy to carry with the handles or the messenger bag strap. A key for me is that I also found that the messenger strap didn't get in the way when I was using the bag as a backpack, a plus since I didn't want to hassle with unclipping it and putting it back.
We found these to be very comfortable. My stubborn fifteen year old whined about hers until she let her Dad adjust her straps and convince her to use her sternum strap and hip belt. Then she also found it comfortable! I won't pretend we used them every day, though. We carried them about every four days, from apartments through Metro stations, onto trains, and walking to apartments. We also carried them in airports and transporting to and fro. It was absolutely enough to get a sense of how they feel, but not a sense of their durability, though I expect they'd do very well. We were on Air Canada the whole way to and from Europe and had no problem carrying these on.
I would recommend these packs without reservation. In retrospect, my husband would have gone with the next size up. He had no problems at all with the small/medium as far as packing it, but thinks he might have preferred the feel of the larger pack on his back. He has used this pack on two other trips and been happy with it both of those times, as well.
We purchased the Osprey Porter 30 with the attached Daylite pack for my twelve year old and I'll post reviews for those, too.
