I carry a duffel with backpack straps for international trips, and I was looking for a side bag to replace the carry on backpack I normally travel with. This courier is the best compromise I could find - and I ordered about $2,000 worth of different side/ messenger bags and totes. Three main features that gave Osprey the edge: 1. External water bottle pocket, which is concealed when not in use. 2. Great structure that doesn't collapse when being packed or when less full of gear 3. Only one front, external clip (most couriers / messengers have two and look like laptop bags). I only wish it layed a little more flat against my hips when worn as a crossbody (which is essential to avoid it swinging down in front of my face when I bend over). Otherwise, a great bag, and you can't beat a lifetime warranty on the durability.

This bag has a lot of positives, but warning - if you're petite, you'll look like you're on your way to catch a flight! I compared the measurements given on the website to those for my current backpack, which is a nice, medium size, and I thought this bag would be similar. Uh, no - this bag is huge. Back it goes. Too bad, because i really like the organizational pockets and the overall look of the thing.

I really like this bag because it's lightweight and fits me well. The padded strap doesn't slip from my shoulder as I trek across campus. That's a big deal because that has been a problem for me with other bags. The bag has lots of storage and an ample padded compartment for my laptop. My one complaint is the I nsane heavy duty Velcro that adorns the front of the bag. Not only is the Velcro redundant--there is a nifty snap strap closure already--but there is way too much of it. Each time I open the bag, the Velcro screeches loudly as I separate its hooks and loops. I've thought about removing it, but don't want to damage the otherwise nice looking and functional front. If I did manage to remove the Velcro, I am confident I could reuse it to suspend a baby grand piano from a balcony.

I was very impressed with the quality construction of this pack as well as the travel specific features but it had not fit me well. I purchased this pack to use it as a carry on travel bag. I loved the way that the shoulder straps and hip belt can be zipped up, in case I did have to check in the pack at the airport or if I just wanted a cleaner look. So no worries about those straps getting caught in other luggage or on the conveyor belts at the airport. The padding on the straps, hip belt and two carry handles is substantial. There is a lot of adjustability with this pack but unfortunately no matter how I adjusted the pack the shoulder straps would dig into the sides of my neck. This pack was the m/l size. I ordered the same pack but in the s/m size to see if the s/m would fit me better. I am female, 5'2" tall, weigh about 103 pounds and have a 16 inch torso. I am aware that these packs were designed to be unisex. I had done extensive research into travel specific packs and this particular pack had great reviews from both men and women. If the s/m size does not fit me I may just have to purchase a female specific pack, which is not a bad thing. I just have not been able to find a female specific pack with all the great features of a quality, travel specific back pack.

I ordered this particular backpack for an everyday pack and the review will be a bit lengthy. There were, in my opinion, a lot of pros to this pack and one con which is why I chose to return it. This was my first time purchasing an Osprey product and I was impressed with the quality construction of the pack. I really like the colors, which are a smokey grey and a pinky purple, not a burgundy wine color. The colors are dark enough that I would not have to worry about dirt showing up to much if the pack did get dirty. There are two large mesh pockets on the outside that will Harold a one liter water bottle. There is one smaller organization compartment in the front which goes a little less than half way down the pack. This compartment has two mesh pockets in it that may fit your cell phone, wallet or maybe a small notebook. There is also a key fob in this outer compartment. The second compartment is the main compartment. This space does have a laptop sleeve which is not padded. I do not have a laptop so I could say which size laptops will fit in this space. I do have an iPad and that does fit in the sleeve with maybe an inch or two from side to side and about three to four inches from the top of the iPad to the top of the sleeve. The pack also has a space on the outside for a hydration bladder. The shoulder straps are padded and have mesh material over them. There is a back panel with cutouts for airflow. This back panel can be removed Which makes the pack lighter and foldable you wanted to pack it into your travel bag. Even when folded the pack would take up a considerable amount of space in your travel bag which may or may not be an issue depending on how small or large your travel bag is. If you are someone who travels carry on only this pack does take up a chunk of space. You could lay it flat in your travel bag. This panel is covered in mesh for breathability. There is an adjustable sternum strap with a whistle, an adjustable waist belt and a carry handle built into the shoulder straps. The pack fit well except for one area. No matter how I adjusted the pack the carry handle would dig into the back of my neck which was very uncomfortable. I really liked this pack but this neck thing was not working for me. I am 5'2" and weigh about 103 pounds. I really wanted this to be my daypack but the search continues.

Most amazing bag ever! The designer thought about how pockets and features would be most useful and they nailed it. Love the layout of compartments and secure zippered pockets. I fit a medium-sized sketchbook in the tablet pocket, a folded jacket in the main section and still have room for shades, headphones and all my other items. Must see to believe! It helped me stay organized through days of travel. It has a super comfortable strap with nice non-slip padding. I'm tall and fully extended the strap to get the ideal length wearing the bag either cross-body or on my shoulder. A hidden zippered pocket under the grip handle is just right for an Oyster/subway card, train tickets, etc. SO great- your tickets are right at your fingertips but not exposed to pickpockets! There is a water bottle pocket on one end and a deep pocket on the other, but the bag is so streamlined. I like having the small reflectors when walking at night and I also love that they are subtle and not too flashy during the day. The bag is sturdy and the fabric is holding up well. It's lightweight and a nice neutral colour. Really appreciate the secure flap with industrial velcro and large single buckle, too. The Flapjill Courier is almost identical, but larger than I wanted for a compact carry-on and day-kit for days of traveling. The Flapjill Mini is the best size for my needs! I don't often review things, but I really admire the workmanship and design here. Thank you Zappos and Osprey!

The size of this day pack is a perfect carry-on for a woman or a small-framed man. Empty, it's light, so you're carrying just what you put into it, not a bag itself. It has lots of ideally placed and ideally sized pockets and two side pockets for water bottles.

This is a well-made, carefully thought out bag, with many useful features. It holds and protects my 13" laptop, iPad, and lots of other assorted items. However (and hence only 4 stars overall), it was not roomy enough to use as my carry-on tote for a long trip to Europe. While it held almost everything important (devices, chargers, makeup, jewelry, noise-cancelling headphones, travel documents, papers, two pairs eyeglasses, basically anything I'd have to kill myself if I lost)...it fell short of being a "bottomless pit." Forget throwing any last minute items in there, it's just not roomy enough. So I guess it's back to my much roomier, tattered L.L. Bean carry-on tote. Or I might try an Osprey backpack next time...I'm amazed at what my husband crams into his.

Bought this bag for a 5 day trip. It fit everything I needed perfectly. Bag is a little small for my 6'3" frame but it is the perfect carry-on size so I can't complain. Bag looks good and is comfortably to wear. Going to invest in some packing cubes to organize my gear and possibly fit a few more things for longer trips. Definitely recommend.

I suppose I should have looked at the dimensions before I bought, because it is huge! And not lightweight at all. There's no way I can wear this even while hiking, much less chasing after my kid on his bike. On a positive note, it's a cool pack. Nice holders for the water bottles. Nice storage. Just large. I'm going to try one of the lighter weight Salomon packs.

I purchased this product for an upcoming six month trip. Seeing that this pack is TSA approved for carry-on, it will save me loads of time and money. Sturdy, stylish, packs well (packing cubes fit perfectly if you like to organize your stuff like I do) and the straps can be hidden for transit. One thing I wish this pack had was a padded breathable channel (like regular backpacks have) to keep from sweating profusely otherwise it is very comfortable. I have no regrets.

The Questa is a nice commuter backpack. It's just big enough to hold my laptop, papers, a book, and a change of clothes for the gym. I don't need to pack much more than that on a normal work day so this works for me. Although I haven't tried, I think a pair of shoes would fit comfortably in the front bungee cord thing, which is supposed to fit a bike helmet. As much as I love the outside design of the Questa (light reflective tabs, waist straps that tuck into side pockets), I wish the size and inside of the bag was like the Nova, which is bigger, has a third zippered compartment and includes additional pockets and slots on the inside for organization. I like to pack a lot of little things sunscreen, sunglasses, lipgloss, Metro card, pepper spray that I prefer to keep in individual pockets for easy access instead of all jumbled together inside a big pocket. I ended up keeping the Questa since I like it just fine as a daily commuter pack (and it looks good) but I also kept the Nova for weekends and small day trips when I need more storage space. Zappos doesn't carry the Nova so I don t know if it's new or old but it's another great Osprey woman-specific backpack with just a little more storage space than the Questa and with a functional storage space in the front instead of a second handle like on the Celeste backpack.

My eight year old LOVES this backpack. It was time to graduate from the "theme" du jour and get him something a little more sturdy. Fits great, plenty of space and organizing pockets. His favorite part is the handle on the front (what can I say, he's eight!). Definitely worth it!

This is a great bag for any need. It has multiple pockets, pouches and nooks for items of all sizes. It is well shaped so that even if you fill it the weight feels evenly distributed. It does not feel like you are carrying a bowling ball on a shoe-string. The bright orange interior lining is sturdy and makes it easy to find things. I put my bags to extreme use and this one handles it with aplomb. I expect to use this bag for the next 8-10 years. It is highly recommended, especially for the moderate price.

I needed a new bag to replace my aging, medium quality leather one. I have carried shoulder bags ("European carry-all" to "Seinfeld" fans) for over 20 years and am dependent on them. I took a chance with the Osprey and strayed from the leather professional look for something more utilitarian and sporty and boy am I glad I did! This thing rocks. It has got multiple pockets, pouches, nooks of all shapes and sizes for everything you need to carry, whether it be a tiny eyeglass screwdriver or laptop computer this pack has a convenient place for it. The bright orange interior lining makes it easy to find any of the 500 things that I have put in this bag. I put my bags to extreme use and this one is handling it just fine. It appears to be smiling and asking to do more.

As a 47 yr old woman who travels a lot I needed to give my shoulder a break from the heavy laptop and purse scenario i usually have for carryons. This pack fits my 15" macbook pro, a couple days of clothing, toiletries, shoes, and miscellaneous purse items handily. Love how the straps tuck into the back if you end up checking the bag. Very comfortable but if it's heavy you need to use the waist strap to really alleviate strain on your shoulders.

This is a top-loading bag, with not so smooth zippers or draw cord, with to much thin mesh on the top of each side of the flat lying waist belt that must plane pulled out to fit your waist on each use. The owner's manual is online, harness adjustment takes a lot of time once I figured out levers are to be pulled down and do not lock. I have read nothing but good things about Osprey standing behind products, which is what lead me to this pack, but with waist belt pocket zippers that are not easy to close one-handed and far to much mesh on top of the waist belt that is super thin, I sent back this bag in the box it came in, that looked more the size of a tiny house.

A year ago I would have given this five stars, however two months after buying it from Zappos both side pockets are ripped and have holes. My son is a first grader, and he only uses the bag to carry the usual stuff to and from school. Nothing a simple backpack should not be able to handle. I bought this in large part because of their guarantee, which is not what I expected. In order to take advantage of the guarantee, I need to pay to ship the entire bag back and wait for them to fix it. Meaning, that I will need to buy another bag for my son (not an Osprey!) to use! The style is good, the comfort is good - too bad about the holes!

Disappointed! Intriguing "anti-gravity" design, but clumsy and stiff. Shoulder straps inflexible, far apart, and dug in. Cords and zippers require too much fight. Hip belt feels like a vise. Pack is hard to put on and take off; belt pockets practically useless. Perhaps a larger person would respond differently (I am 5'1" and weigh less than 100 lb., tried the XS.) Like the bottom zip, but that is not enough to make a great pack.

I got this as a gift for my daughter who is a teacher. Her teacher bag was heavy and she needed something with a handle plus a strap that would cross from shoulder to hip to protect her spine. She really likes thie secure design features of the flap, keeping her papers tucked in and protected from the weather. The textured back keeps it from sliding and swinging away from her, which prevents her from losing her balance or wrenching her neck. Her laptop fits inside, too.

Ordered this pack and it arrived the next day. I took it to the Grand Canyon for a rim to river and back same day trip. I have done this trip several times but not with a pack as comfortable. This pack is far superior to other packs I have used in the past. The weight distribution and adjust ability is the best I have found. This pack is amazing for 1 to 5 days out on the trail in my opinion.
