They call it a daypack, but it is much more! I have traveled for 4 years with the same pack. I have found no drawbacks.
You can hold 5 days worth of winter clothes, electronics, and toiletries in the Epic. The pack itself is very durable.
The best part of the pack is its ability to fit in overhead compartments in air planes. After I bought the pack I have never checked a bag on a plane! I am 6 feet tall and 275 lbs, the pack fits me fine.
I have never used my pack as a "daypack". In fact,when I travel my daypack hangs from my Epic! Thank you Osprey, You have made travel soooo much faster, and easier!
