User Review: The North Face Men's Ion 20
Price Paid: £80
Maybe I'm rough on packs. But this didn't last well. The straps wore out quickly as did the mesh coating on the - comfy - foam strips on the back. Oddly still my fav day pack as it was so damn comfy.
I think I'm probably to blame, only used the waist strap when out of town, but used in the city as my commute bag. I think this allowed it to move to much, I was also prone to wearing it over only one shoulder when jumping the train. Don't think it liked that at all.
So for the outdoors yes. For town - no.
