I am a track and field coach and was looking for a pack to keep my gear and extra clothes dry during those nasty-weather-track-meets. Not only has it kept everything dry, but its low profile, when packed light, does not get in my way when coaching my athletes.
I plan on taking this when I backpack Asia to use as my day pack. Once again, the low profile will allow me to move through crowded city streets, shops and buses without knocking people out of my way. I'll pack my valuable items in the main compartment as the roll-top is completely pick-pocket-proof.
I also cannot wait to take this snow skiing. The hydration bladder is a must along with the awesome water resistance (almost water proof) and, once again, the low profile to stay out of the way. The construction will be able to take many falls on those icy patches. This thing is just plain sweet.
The price is steep, but I won't buy another day pack for a very long time. Buy one and you will not be disappointed.
