I was going backpacking for a week in Mexico in March, I knew I would be moving around and being a female solo traveler, I didn't want to have a suitcase to slow me down! So I went shopping for a backpack and I looked all the recommendation online. Osprey is the brand that came out on the top! I went to the store because it's important to try your backpack to see the fit!! They didn't have the model I wanted (Fairview) and the saleman recommend me to try the Kyte 36L, The fit was perfect! If you are a minimalist that bag will be perfect for you to travel is only downsides for the travel for me are that it's doesn't have a laptop sleeve and that it's a top load bag!!
