I purposely waited to submit a review until I had used this pack for several different scenarios. It performs beautifully! The only (small) gripe I have is that the mesh suspension and Kickstand features make this pack a bit on the heavy side, but the suspension is so ungodly comfortable that I don't mind! I use it to/from work (I park far away from my building and have to walk), and recently used it for a trip to Nevada. The Kickstand feature has to be my favorite! No more bags tipping over and getting dirty or spilling my stuff everywhere! The Kickstand also makes it easy for me to access both zippered compartments. I was able to use the compression straps on the sides and shove this under my seat...Spirit and Frontier Airlines both allowed it without a problem! It was great to be able to fit so much in this bag and not have to worry about checking a bag, waiting at the carousel, the airline losing my bag...etc. Anything that makes flying smoother for me is a plus! Another great feature of this bag is that the main compartment's depth accommodates a lunch box, which is crucial for work. This way, everything (including my purse and other work essentials) fits into my bag and I'm only carrying one pack in to work!
