I Love this backpack!!! I've had it a while now, and the way its set up is awesome. It's nicely waterproof, very light, stores everything I need and more!

My favorite feature is however, the cinch straps. They smash the pack to keep your stuff in place and super snug, but mostly I find myself just pre-smashing it to take on short trips!

The only downside in my mind, is the side access pockets are at the bottom, and then you have a top access one. Bottom line, if your stuff is in the middle you can't get it unless you want to really dig.

I love this backpack though!!! Good for someone who needs to stretch their dollar.
