Purchased this bag for a 3 week trip to Europe. I really like how simple the design of this bag is. Not too many pockets and zippers while still holding a lot. I would suggest buying compression cubes to help pack more in. The option to tuck away the backpack straps and turn into more of a duffel bag is a great feature.

I just ordered this bag now that I no longer have to carry a diaper bag everywhere (yay!). There was no video at the time that I purchased it and I was surprised that the pocket under the flap has a low side/edge. I was suspicious that items would be more likely to fall out, but after using the bag I find things very secure in the front pocket. Once the middle zipper pocket has some of my things in it, the front pocket seems to become more secure. This bag is light and is the perfect size to put my planner and sun glasses case in the zipper pocket with some kleenex. I keep my small wallet in the back zipper pocket because it feels very safe, and my phone and keys fit in the front pocket with my headphones. All in all, everything has a place and this holds an impressive amount of stuff (including sweaters for my kids when we were at the zoo!). Fits comfortably on my body.

The perfect backpacking backpack. Just came back from my trip to Thailand and this backpack made traveling easy. It was definitely carry on compatible; while I was checking in, the employee asked if I was checking any bags and I said no. She just saw my backpack and said oh ok, you're good. I was able to fit my tablet, 3 traveling cubes full of clothes, Teva sandals, Rainbow sandals, 3 pairs of jean shorts, a medium Joby gorilla tripod, headphones, and more. Would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a backpacking backpack without having it look very bulky. Once it's full, it makes you look you like you have a turtle shell on!

Good sturdy bag but its not quit big enough for me i could probably lose a couple of items to get it to work. There is one problem though it is suppose to fit a 15in computer which is not correct it is 15in in length. Very comfortable when loaded with 10kg just wish it fit the computer. Will have to return

The Questa is a great size for commuting to work and the mint green color is bright for commuting in the early morning but not garish. The organized pocket on the front and space for a lunch, folder and water bottle is great!

On first glance this is a great little bag. I have been looking everywhere for a small but functional crossbody bag, and this one fits the bill in many ways: - It has enough room to carry the essentials and then some, despite its compactness. - The number of pockets for this size bag is impressive. My purses tend to become black holes of stuff, but I have a feeling I wouldn't be able to help but be more organized with this bag. - The tan color is a nice, neutral shade. - The quality of the materials seems very high, especially the inner lining, which is thicker and sturdier than the lining of most other bags I have owned. I also like the exterior canvas fabric. With all that said, I gave this less than five stars because of the flap opening for the front pocket. While this makes your items in that pocket more readily accessible, it's also not all that secure. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me given that that front pocket has spaces for items like your keys, credit cards, and phone - aka most of the stuff you'd want kept most securely. I really wish that this pocket had a zipper or at least a buckle. The latter seems to be offered on the front pockets of the larger FlapJill models, and I wonder why they didn't include it for the Micro. For this reason I may keep looking. But if this doesn't bother you, it might be the bag for you!

LOVE! I needed a lightweight backpack with a ton of convenient features and this fit the bill. The black pack is lined in blue making it so easy to find what I need. Genius idea, Osprey. Adjustable straps are comfortable and fit well for my frame, 5'4" and 135lb. The small zippered pocket, in the front, is great for my ID, sunglasses or a small electronic item. The front zippered compartment organizes items like pens, keys, flash drives, small notepads, and a slew of other small items easily. It also nicely fits my 6-ringed planner and a small cosmetic pouch. Further, inside the main zippered compartment is a dedicated slot for a laptop and another slot for a tablet with a zippered section. There are other features I appreciate: stretchy side bottle pockets, the well-padded handle and shoulder straps, and bungee cord in front to store a jacket/sweatshirt quickly. One tremendous bonus is that the bag stands up on its own when loaded. It can even be placed against something like a chair or table and not slide to the floor. Overall, Osprey has done a fine job with this pack. Very happy with my purchase.

I was looking for a lightweight carryon that would meet international standards and did quite a bit of online shopping before I chose this pack. I'm delighted. I wanted a carryon to take essentials (and not be checked) for our next international trip. This is going to be perfect. It will carry quite a bit more than I expected, wheels easily and is VERY light. I'm considering getting another for my travel partner. If you don't want to go the backpack route, this is a great choice for a carryon.

This is my first product from Osprey and it will not be my last. I needed a nice bag to hold all my bathroom supplies for my long trips for work and this little guy stepped up. Its very light weight but holds a good bit. I love the hook that allows you to hang this bag from your bathroom and allows you to see everything you need. Plus the color alone makes it awesome

Very lightweight with lots of zippered pouches. It will be a valuable travel bag for packing all of those little items. And the bright orange makes it easy to locate.

Perfect! This bag is great for me. It has enough room for big outings and room to carry my kiddos stuff too. I've used this for festivals and obstacle course race day. It holds all my clean up essentials and more. The color is great! I love osprey packs!

I used this backpack this summer while backpacking through Europe. This was the only bag that I brought with me and I do not pack light, but this bag gave me ample room for everything I needed during those three weeks. I was able to carry this on for my flight out of Chicago, and on all of my international flights from Dublin, to London, to Italy, and Sweden. This backpack had great back support, and I loved the detachable day-pack. Would definitely recommend this item to anyone!

I really really wanted to love this pack. On my 5'1 frame it can be a challenge to find a pack that has all the organization and capacity that I want without feeling like it is overwhelming me. It's lightweight, stylish and keeps a slim profile even when fully loaded with all you would need for your day, whether commuting to work, school or a day hike. Where this pack lost me was the fit...the length of the back panel and curved straps felt about the same as other women's fit packs of its size, but for some reason the sternum strap felt unusually low...at its highest placement it still laid uncomfortably across the top of my breasts. I've tried and loved Osprey packs before with the women's XS/S frame option and they have fit beautifully, perhaps I just don't fit the standard size. The purple color was pretty, but not how it appears...picture shows a two-tone purple and deeper almost reddish magenta, in person it's solid purple and brighter pinky magenta. That would have been ok, but in the end, just not a comfortable as a pack should be. Sadly, going back.

I was really excited about this bag. It is cute with pockets in all the right places. But, perhaps because it is "designed for women," the laptop pocket, while fine at the top for a 15" laptop narrows so you can't actually slide the laptop all the way in. A tablet would fit fine. Disappointed I have to return it

This is a great bag! A little small, but so is my son - so it works! Unfortunately, after one week of hiking and two weeks of school, the bag is ripping in multiple places. The two side pockets look like stretched out pantyhose with holes in them and the larger pocket is ripping as well. Its a shame, this is such a cool bag!!

Overall, I really love this pack. I took it on a 2 week trek through Iceland and it held up very well. A few things to note that I did not not like... it doesn't have an exterior web pocket for stuffing jackets, etc in when you're in a hurry. Since I got the xs/s size, it is not quite as large as I had hoped and also the pockets on the waistband don't hold much of anything. The rain fly ripped pretty easily with my treking poles stored on the back, but I knew that would likely happen (probably would happen with most packs).

Love this bag! It's bigger than I expected it to be. There's a ton of pockets and it is very sturdy. The color is also better in person. I bought it as a gift for someone else and I will be purchasing one for myself!

It is a really nice bag, but with the load that even a 1st grader has these days the bag is almost too small. It might work for one year, but I will be returning the bag in favor of a slightly larger model.

If you like bright green then this pack is for you. The color was not for me. This pack is quality made, good zippers that lock and easy to adjust straps. This is a 40 liter pack. I am 5'2" tall, weigh about 105 pounds and found this pack top heavy and I had not even filled it all the way. The area for the laptop is in the front of the pack not close to your back. I do not have a laptop but I do have an iPad. The area for your laptop or iPad is padded and my iPad had fit in the sleeve perfectly along with a magazine with room to spare so a laptop would fit. I have tried other 40liter bags with no success in finding a backpack. I had tried the 30liter version of this pack to see if it felt better. The 30 liter and 40 liter are very similar. The 30 liter does not have load lifter straps. The 30 liter laptop sleeve fit my iPad perfectly but it did not have room to spare so I am not sure that a laptop would fit in the sleeve. The 30 liter was not top heavy on me and felt better to carry around. Both 30 and 40 liters had good padding in the shoulder straps. There is some padding in both hip belts. Both packs have the ability for the shoulder straps and waist belt to be packed away which is great for travel. I definitely did not like the hard sides on these packs. It was great for packing the bag because the sides stayed upright like a suitcase but they were to rigid for me and were more of an annoyance to me. Because of the rigid side the pack is on the heavier side and takes more space when you want to put it away when not in use.

I don't know why I waited so long for a real backpack... one for day hiking! One that wasn't made for a tall man! Love this backpack!
