This pack had everything I wanted. Lots of room, padding etc.
The big drawback, which is why I won't recommend it, is that the hand loop is part of the shoulder harness. For me this is in conflict with my neck when trying to shift the pack upwards. I also can't lean my head back because of it. I end up usually looking down.
Make sure you keep the tags on and wear it around the house as often and as long as you can before using it. Once the tags are off there is no return.
I suggest you look at something else :(
