Great backpack for kids (hiking, school, etc.). Have had several PBK bags over the years and they don't last long (and tastes change quickly). Bought an Osprey bag for my older son and it has held up great. My younger guy picked this out. He is going into kindergarten and this is the perfect size for him. Great sturdy bag, with plenty of room. Both my kids loved the whistle option too...which could be removed.

I've been using this bag as a purse for about 6 months now. I love the look of it, and the water resistance is handy, however I have found a few concerns: * I actively use all of the pockets. In the first small zip pouch I keep meds, chapstick, and keys, and in the second small zip pouch I keep makeup. In the end small pouch I keep pens and pencils. All of this use significantly reduces the available room inside the larger compartment of the bag. * The larger compartments are great if you don't use the small zip pouches. It's not a good bag for water bottles of any size. * On the inside of the larger compartment is a divider/flap. I put my calendar in there, and I can because it's got a vinyl cover on it (and is letter sized). * The bag is big enough for manila folders, but it's not reinforced, so they get bent. Don't like this. * In my main compartment I can fit two Samsung phones and my calendar and that's it. I was hoping this bag was much bigger. * The velcro on the flap part seems to get caught on my clothes a lot when I open it in my lap. * Lastly, I now walk with a cane, so I was grateful for the shoulder strap. The strap is so wide though, that it pulls against my neck and is quite painful. It's about as thick as a seat belt. The padding on the strap doesn't help, it makes it more constricting. I may return this bag. It's not right for me, but your mileage may vary.

I'm a 5'9" female and this bag fits me great. Comfortable. I used it for some international travel, and the handle on the side is nice for carrying the bag when you don't want to wear it like a backpack. My only complaint: it didn't quite fit in the overhead compartments in any of the planes I flew in. Maybe I had my bag stuffed to the gills, but I'm glad it could squeeze under the seat. It's too big to use as a daily school backpack.

The color of this bag is not white. It is the color of the strap, grey-the entire bag is grey. I am exchanging for a different color. The size is what I wanted.

We just got this backpack for my son, who is 13, about 5'5" tall, and recently outgrew his Osprey Zip kids pack. He is very happy with the fit and also the color. He tried other packs where the shoulder straps rubbed on his neck uncomfortably, and didn't have that issue with this pack. He will mostly use it day hiking in New England and northern NY, and I'm optimistic that it will hold up as well as his previous pack did.

I used this pack to walk the Camino De Santiago this year (April - May 2015). No problems. I walked for over 39 days with no days off and not a single problem with this pack! I had it sized/adjusted at the REI store where I purchased it. The guy who adjusted the pack (straps, bag height etc) did a excellent job. He has hiked many trails and knew how to adjust a pack. I had no shoulder, back, hip pain from the pack. Regrets: I had two external flexible water bottles (Platypus 1L each, with ring on top). One in each side pocket. I used a clip to ensure they would not fall/bounce out of pocket. I used straps to snug the pocket tight. Using them resulted in having to drop pack (or ask my partner) to remove the bottles) for a drink. I left my Osprey hydro pack at home. While Platypus is a good product and you can buy the hose system for the bottles. Will be hiking the Camino De Plata (N>S) Spain next year (2016), I will have my USMC (made by CamelBak) hydro pack (3L) and hose on this hike vs the Platypus bottles. This hydro bladder fits perfectly inside the pack. This hydro pack can be refilled without removing the bladder from the pack or opening the cap on the bottle. The bladder can stay in the bag while you refill (reverse flow to the bag) from tap or a purchased drinking bottle. (SEE: http://sourcetacticalgear.com/hydration-accessories/33-uta.html) . A 3L bladder weighs about the same empty as a 2L bladder. Would rather have the extra L if needed. Osprey's 2L and 3L bladders can be used with the pack. For those of you who may do the Camino(s): there are many places to refill water bottles or buy a bottle of water on the Camino. But, many times I did consume the full 2 Liters of water and purchased more when came to a town. A US Army 1 qt canteen fits in the side pockets. Weighs nothing. I used a Osprey pack cover a few times on the Camino. It does rain in Spain! With any pack, it is not 100% waterproof. I also purchased an Osprey bag to put the pack into it for transport on plane, bus and train. That protects the back pack and its contents. Stuffs into its own pocket. I put it inside the pack on the Camino. Yes, that adds some weight. But I hardly noticed it. Sorry, I forgot the name of the sack. It has shoulder strap and zips close.

Absolutely best backpack/laptop bag I have. Unfortunately I have way TOO many laptop bags/ backpacks... searching for this one. I don't know why I didn't think of Osprey in the first place. I have an Osprey duffle that has been used almost daily for 2-3 years and its still going as strong as the day I bought it.

Very sleak and functional. I removed the waist straps because I'll never use them and they mostly got in the way and got in the way of the sleak design. Would definitely recommend the brand and bag to my urban minded friends and colleagues.

Had my bag for a couple of years and see no signs of wear. However, I don't carry it every day but when I travel it is the perfect bag for my tablet and whatever I need easy access to. It went to Europe when I first got it and is going to Costa Rica in September.

I'll be taking this bag on a couple of major trips this summer and am eager to try it out. I've already run into one major disappointment, though - the water bottle holder on the side is far too small to hold a standard 22-oz aluminum water bottle. It's wide enough, but too shallow, and the zipper won't hold the bottle firmly enough to keep it from toppling out. This is a pretty big drawback, but I'm going to stick with the bag and see if I can't find a good way to carry the water bottle inside without it interfering with my camera and other supplies. The outside pocket may be big enough for a miniature umbrella. Fingers crossed.

This is quite stylish in black...can actually carry it through an airport with a sports coat. When you strap it all the way on and buckle it at the waist is amazing how evenly balanced it is. The large is not terribly spacious inside. It's tall, and I've had to park a lot of stuff right up to the top.

This fits my lifestyle perfectly, I purchased the pack to be able to carry my laptop on my bike. It is elegant and sheik. It is small however, make sure you have a small laptop to carry and not too many books, it will fit the laptop and a notebook plus one other book at best.

Have owned this backpack for a year and taken it on several multi-day backpacking trips in VA and MD. Am taking it to Philmont in a few weeks. I really like the pack in terms of weight and style. The only drawback of this pack is that the pocket for the water bladder is inside the main compartment of the pack---so if your water bladder leaks it can make the inside of you pack (and any unprotected stuff in there) wet. With this design the water bladder also takes up valuable pack space.

Best cross over bag for a female...this is such a great bag! This bag is just the right size for everyday to and from work and yet I can pack for an overnight stay as well. The strap is super comfy and and all the pockets are great! I highly recommend this bag!

Look no further, for you have found your next backpack. I was in need of a new backpack before going to Spain. I have gone through 2 North Face backpacks in the past 8 years and decided I want something better and different. I am familiar with Osprey packs from my friends who climb and backpack and was hoping they had a standard backpack that could fit my computer and other stuff. Bingo! This pack is everything you need, it fits my 15 inch macbook and protects it, there are pockets and compartments for everything. The drink compartments on the side are adjustable to secure drinks. The bag is so comfortable and very well made and has an incredible life time warranty. I could not have conquered Spain if it wasn't for this pack. Don't be hesitant because it costs $90, this bag will last and it is worth it, just buy it.

I really like Osprey luggage because of the high clearance wheels and base and simple designs. I didn't like this bag. The inserts add a lot of weight-not sure I would actually use them. The opening of the bag is small, so visibility is limited and you can't store much in the flap (either inside or outside). There are no inside pockets. Rather expensive compared to similar Osprey bags.

This is a nice bag. Light-weight, high clearance wheels and base. I decided to return it, however, because it has less capacity than my old Osprey Vector bag.

This is a perfect little bag with all the right pockets and zippers. It is just what I was looking for and is very comfortable to wear. I especially love the Velcro pocket inside which I use for my daily calendar instead of a tablet/small laptop. I love this bag!

If you are under 5'3" or have a short torso (mine is ~16"), this is your backpack. I've been searching for a leisure travel bag (ie, not one to carry a bunch of heavy computer stuff). My requirements were basically that it fit, be comfortable to carry a "heavy" load (according to calculations, I only have 39lbs of muscle mass, so give me a break if I consider 15lbs "heavy"), carry 35-40L, work as a Euro airline carry-on, and open like a suitcase. Wants, as opposed to needs, were some small exterior pockets for bits, ideally some on the hip belt, lockable zippers and to get it in black. I tried: The REI Trail 40 pack for women - I ordered the small and it was still absurdly long on me and also only came in purple and grey/pink (can't be a woman's bag with no pink!) The Kelty Redwing 40 - this is supposed to fit a torso from 14.5"-18" but was too short on my no matter how I tried rearranging the straps. Additionally it felt cheaply made. I didn't have any confidence in the zippers and the pulls were not lockable. The Osprey Porter 30 - REI employee: "So the best part of today was taking off the pack? That's not good." Felt really heavy and did not conform to my back - too bad because I liked the layout for efficient packability. Tom Bihn's Aeronaut 30 - I just assumed this would be really comfortable because I (unfortunately) seem to be fit best by the most expensive option. This was the best bag for looks and layout. However, though I loved the bag itself, with the straps cinched all the way to fit my smaller frame, they dug into my neck, and the bag of course felt heavier than others with no weight-bearing hip belt. I ordered the Osprey Farpoint in the S/M size and it is a solid 8.5/10. It is comfortable at a realistic load, which is the most important thing, and it opens like a suitcase, which is the second most important thing for me. I doubt I will ever use the shoulder strap to carry it, but it's nice that the option is there, and even nicer that the shoulder straps can be zipped away in case the Euro airlines go even nuttier in the future with size restrictions, or if I went over the weight limit and needed to check it. Load lifters and an adjustable sternum strap help customize the fit. It's got lockable zippers (and in fact, if you have one of those locks with a short cable, one lock will secure the front and main sections) - and it comes in (almost) black! My complaints: - a LITTLE more interior organization wouldn't have gone awry, like an elastic pocket along the side walls or something - I hate that the laptop/tablet sleeve is in the front, though I can't see a better way to handle it - there is no way to attach anything else to the bag, unless you get creative with the shoulder strap attachment points. This is probably the biggest downside of the bag (and it's small, admittedly) but it would have been nice to be able to attach a yoga mat, or jacket, or pillow for those 15 hour flights. - there is only one pocket accessible when the exterior compression straps are in use, the sunglasses or whatever one at the very top of the bag. - small design thing, I really like when backpack makers have the little elastic on shoulder straps for you to tuck away any excess on the strap - this one doesn't have that. It's a small thing but with all the straps everywhere it does feel backpackery. - why isn't it just black? why is it this weird charcoal color? The gray straps just kind of give the impression that it's black that's been well-worn already and it kind of looks dirty at a glance, to me at least.

Perfect in almost every way. I would love to have a less casual look. But since it is what it is - I accept. I would recommend this as a great travel carry on bag. Everything organized.

This is a fantastic traveling pack. The larger portion does work as a carry on item. I have had no problems getting it in the overhead bins in any of the airlines. The daypack is truly a nice bonus. As a short female (5'2") it was quite heavy on my back all together. Going between gates in the airport, I would wear the larger one on my back and the smaller pack in front to distribute the weight more easily. The nice part is that the you can zip away the backpack straps on the larger portion if you decide to check in the bag. I was able to use this on a two week international trip and had a little room to spare for souvenirs. One recommendation I have for Osprey would be the addition of the side strap as seen on the smaller 45L version. There were times that it would have been extremely helpful.
