Overall,, it's a great bag! It looks good, it's light weight enough. It has zippers you can run a TSA-approed or similar lock through it. The daypack is great and has a good laptop sleeve that comfortably holds my 15 (plus) inch laptop. The daypack is also textured inside and is a bright green color, as is the interior of of the main pack.
This type of combo bag is what I needed, for staying in hostels especially, so I can easily store my luggage in the main pack and lock it away or leave it on or under my bed, but can bring my pack with laptop (Macbook Air, lightweight for travel), camera, some food, etc., and not worry about leaving valuables behind. It's great to have just one bag to carry from planes, trains, and automobiles, yet containing the option of having two different function bags to use simultaneously once arrived at my destination(s).
The only reason I didn't end up keeping it is I still wanted something larger, not because I needed more space to get by for a 70 day European travel trip, but because I wanted more space to bring things back home as souvenirs or for memories, as this trip is my first time going. This could easily be overkill, too, as the 80 with a piggy bag is MUCH larger than this bag. But having more space to pack for travel doesn't mean (for me) that I'll pack more things, it just means I'll come back with more (lightweight keepsakes, which I'm very much OK with, and look forward to! For a more seasoned traveler or a dedicated minimalist, you can easily pack away in this for as long a journey as you need--just wash your clothes and consider some packing cubes or some method to organize and/or compress your items and clothing.
Ultimately I chose the 80, with a Quasar to piggyback as I really didn't like the Daylite Plus. But I think the 70 is great and Osprey quality speaks for itself, so I don't need to improve upon that, here.
i modified it quite a bit. (the stow away strap area....i made that into an extra chamber by having the backpack straps go through the stow away area....now that area fits a laptop :)....i added a shoulder strap that comes goes between the top and side handle so that i can carry it like a duffle bag if im only going 40 feet and dont want to put it on as a back pack....i sowed an extra pocket on the daypack on the part that is on your back to make the daypack more useful...it can now hold a 17 inch laptop :)
daypack fits two 15 inch laptops....if you stretch things....
17inch laptop wouldnt fit.
works as a carry-on (tried it 6 times)
I like it because it's an all-in-one and I can carry a lot. But when it's not full, it becomes a "droopy backpack" which I hate. The inside stabilizing straps only work when the pack is completely full. I got a bigger bag to have the option for packing for a few months or for a couple of days. As it turns out, A WEEKEND BAG, THIS IS NOT. The compression straps are only for the front of the bag, which means, all of the weight is towards the daypack. Bad idea.
Still on the hunt for the perfect bag. Sigh.
