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.
1) Go pro hero 4, case, selfie stick

7) Ziploc bag of medicine/vitamins
Pro: they added an ID holder to the part that zips to cover the straps
Con: they made the zipper pulls smaller which i noticed RIGHT away because it's much easier to open the old style.
My friend and I both bought these in different colors on a two week jaunt through Europe in size S/M (so in reality they're 38 liters).Note: the sizes are for your torso length which isn't exactly related to your height but I'd say if you're under 5'7 you're likely the S/M and over 6' you're probably M/L but inbetween it'd be best to get measured. Also, it's definitely easy to make this bag too thick for the carry on sizers if you put too much stuff in the front packet so be aware of that!
This bag is great for the strong material, great support, warranty, and is, for the most part, well thought out. Initially I was really disappointed in the uselessness of the water bottle holders but my friend and I figured out that you could clip a carabiner to the top and tuck the water bottle into the compression strap (see picture) so it's not a free range weapon to all those around you. We then used the pockets for small maps / books / pamphlets / whatever.
If you're going to be doing any bit of walking over 15 minutes long I definitely think it's important to get a back with a proper support system. You'd be amazed what cinching up the hipbelt can do for you! I recommend watching a video of how to properly put on a hiking backpack before you leave so you can get the most comfort out of this bag(the hipbelt goes a lot higher up than you think!). If you're staying somewhere for a couple days it really helps the space look less cluttered if you zip the straps up / you can check your bags without fear of it getting the straps ripped out. Also great for storage. The lockable zippers is what really (in my opinion) seals the deal for this bag. If you need to check your bag or don't have a locker you're much less likely to have your stuff get stolen. If you buy the cable travel locks you only need one to thread through both zippers! Other than that I like the layout. I used the front sleeve to hold tickets / order confirmations / directions / hostel locations etc which was great because it made them easy to find and kept them from getting crumpled. The smallest zip pocket was great for keeping quick-reach items or things such as my sunglasses I worried would get smashed. I recommend using packing cubes with this to maximize space and organization. I used a mixture of Ebag slims and Eagle Creek Spectres. If you need it it's also possible to lash things onto the aforementioned lash point (where we hooked up our water bottle carabiners). When you pack your bag I recommend intentionally making sure you shove your first items down in the "U" at the bottom after the zippers end- you'd be amazed how much fits down there. Also, on travel days, put your liquids on the top of the big pouch for easy access without opening the whole bag. :)
I have two other "wish lists" for this bag. I wish the compression straps went all the way around the bag to the back panel. I preferred to stuff the big pocket but if you don't fill it (ie a short trip) it gets floppy and shapeless. Echoing others, I REALLY wish the laptop pocket was along the back panel. It makes me nervous to have my screen on the outside of the bag but so far I haven't had any issues. This is getting nitpicky but I wish there was a stash pocket somewhere along the back panel so when you're traveling you could store your tickets somewhere quickly (I like to lock both compartments) yet out of eyesight.
The only bag I would consider trading this in for is the Tom Bihn Aeronaut but it's twice as much so I'll stick with my Farpoint! Better compression straps and a new laptop pocket would make this a no-brainer 5 stars, even though buying it is already a no-brainer.
