Have tried a couple of other backpacks, but think that I finally found that I was looking for. I use this bag for work and have to walk 20 min from the train. Most bags have been too long for me (I'm 5'5) and hitting at the small of my back. This is very light and short but fits my laptop, a few folders or books and a bottle of water.

This is a good bag! Big enough to hold my tablet, but not too clunky. I like the side zipper pocket - good for easy access to my phone/camera while traveling (though it's not very big). Inside, there are two zip pockets with a key fob and a couple organization pockets, which are fantastic. In the main compartment, there is the velcro tablet pocket, and then lots of space for a guidebook, umbrella, and water bottle. Last but not least, I really like the clip and velcro flap - makes me feel pretty secure. The only way it could be improved: add a flat slide pocket on the back, to hold a map or magazine.

Love! Lightweight; plenty of interior room; the shoulder strap is very comfortable. The color is definitely not black but a beautiful slate gray. As noted in an earlier review there is no place to "tuck" the excess strap so I folded it up and secured it with a black hair band.

I've been using this backpack almost daily for close to a year and a half and it is holding up beautifully. I purchased it for my commute and I love it. It fits a 17" laptop with no problems along with just about everything else I could need during the day. I'm fairly petite and I have no problems wearing this even when completely loaded. It has also become my go-to carry-on and overnight bag. Highly recommended!

I love this bag I can fit everything in it for my master's degree program. It has great use of space and adequately stores my laptop safely. I would recommend this bag for everyone.

I really like this bag. I use it as an everyday purse, and can easily fit a 7" tablet along with all my other pursey things. It's machine washable, and very well-made. It has lots of pockets for organization. The inside back pocket has a velcro flap to keep stuff separate from the main compartment. The only improvement I wish it had was a side compartment for a water bottle or thermos. Otherwise, it's fantastic!

I ordered this bag for a carry on option for a trip I'm taking. I think this is a great bag. It's sturdy, holds a great deal, backpack component was comfortable. In the end, I went with Eagle Creek Adventure Wheeled Backpack 22". I wanted the ability to roll the luggage.

I really like this bag. It is easy to handle and I was able to pack everything I needed for a week s worth of travel (three pairs of pants, four tops, underwear, sneakers and toiletries). It is lightweight and I carried it easily when going up and down stairs. It rolled along streets with uneven pavements without tipping over. The top pocket was perfect for stashing cords for my mobile devices and my iPad mini fit perfectly in the back pocket. I have only used it once, but I believe this bag is the perfect companion for my travels and I look forward to using it again on my next trip.

Bought this bag for an extended trip through Europe, and it worked great. We traveled by train, plane, and ship with no issues. Was just the right size for stuffing everything I needed.

I recently bought the Viper 9 (without the Osprey bladder) after my trusty 15-year old Jandd Mountaineering hydration pack finally bit the dust. This is my third Osprey day/hydration pack and I'm extremely pleased with it. It's the perfect size for short-to-medium length MTB rides, its organizational features are just about perfect, and it's extremely comfortable. I was originally looking at the Raptor 10, but I'm glad I bought the Viper 9 instead. I love how the hydration tube is enclosed by the full length zipper over the top of the bag - no more extra tubing catching on branches or swinging around. The small organizer sleeves in the pockets are the perfect size for my tools & tire pump. The stuff-it pocket and the helmet attachment work perfectly when you need them, but are out of the way when you don't. Everything just works right - it's got enough pockets & organization without going over the top like the Raptor 10. I m 6 5 , 220 lbs & it's one of the few 1-size hydration packs that fits me well. It's very comfortable on long rides & stays tight to your back. Highly recommended!

I tried the Beta Port first and it was just too small. I am an engineer, and often have to carry papers and utensils and tools for day trips or overnighters. It is the perfect size for my work folder plus anything else I can think of for the day. Great design, very good quality, and comfortable to wear. I would highly recommend this bag.

Beautiful purple, but I ended up returning The "lacing" on the front is not a useful shoe holder or water bottle holder or whatever, but printed lines! Kind of cheesy.

Awesome pack. Took this bad boy to Napo Province in Ecuador for a 10 day medical service trip. Superior! Got me there in comfort. The little zip off pack is great for a day pack. Able to pack enough gear for 9-10 hot days in the Amazon basin. Love this pack and you will too. Plan to use for 'less' adventuresome travels in the future.

Comfortable backpack, durable, very well designed and attractive. Has all the bells and whistles you could ever want. That being said, if you're looking for a commuting bag for work or school, you may not be happy with this one. I bike to work and this bag is designed to be great to wear while biking, but despite the "large" 36L capacity, it's tough to fit everything I need inside. The back panel is molded and firm which makes loading a laptop awkward and difficult. Try adding a change of clothes, a pair of shoes, and lunch - not happening. The rounded and firm shape of the back panel combined with the tall and narrow shape of the pack itself is best suited for carrying lightweight, squishy/flexible and compact items that you might take on a dayhike, extended bike ride or overnight camping trip. For those purposes, the pack is definitely a winner. But if you want a bag for carrying bulky items to work/school/etc, I would not recommend this pack.

I've been looking for a bag like this for awhile. I have finally found what I've been wanting. The inside has room for my iPad along with my usual "bag" needs. Totally in love with this one.

I needed a lightweight messenger bag that wouldn't cause me back pain, and was compact as I commute every day. I've found this bag to have that balance, and have been very happy with it. Really like the iPad window - makes it convenient to access my iPad without taking it out of the bag.

This bag is fantastic. I always aim for as small a bag as possible so I don't overload it since I have to walk and stand for long periods during my hour long commute on public transit. I had narrowed it down to this bag, a couple other Ospreys and one other brand but chose the Pixel Port because it was the smallest/lightest. I've had this bag for a few weeks now and overall am very happy. It comfortably holds: 15" laptop, iPad, power charger, wireless mouse, USB cable, small notepad (though there is a slot for a letter size notebook), pens, wallet, keys and a few other odds and ends. Basically everything I need, nothing I don't (with one exception which I'll get to). I love how slim this bag is, it's not bulky like most backpacks and is so comfortable to wear. I can tell a huge difference between this and the shoulder bag I was using previously which was wreaking havoc on my back. Notable Features: - lightweight/compact - iPad slot with window so you can use your iPad without removing from bag (I might actually use this during my commute if I didn't ride crowded NYC trains) - key clip to keep keys accessible - outer pocket for quick access. What's Missing - small pocket somewhere for "personal" items - water bottle pocket The lack of a place to put a water bottle is killing me. My old bag didn't have one either but I put a clip on it and was fine. I tried the clip approach with this bag but the only spots I can clip it to make the bottle hang too low and swing about uncontrollably. But in every other way this bag is perfect for me so I guess I'll just keep trying to come up with other solutions.

I spent several days looking at bags and finally settled on the FlapJill Mini. I was in need of a work bag that held my purse contents and my work iPad. This fit the bill. I would like to have had the outside flap with a small zip pocket for my phone like the larger bag has, but it's not a deal breaker. All in all I'm pleased and would buy again.

I purchased this pack to do the 500 miles of the Camino de Santiago Compestella from April 15 through May 22 2013. I averaged 15 miles per day and loved the pack. My girlfriend and I tried to travel light so, without water, I carried approximately 22 pounds. My only issue is one of the zippers came off track and I have not yet fixed it.
