Got this about a year and a half ago. It is great for a few days of light travel. I've taken it to Florida, Texas, and Vegas and it has been great only having this one bag to worry about during travel. It isn't super comfortable to carry on your back for a long time but it isn't unbearable. I carried it on my back through two different trains and made the long walk from the orange line to the terminal at Chicago midway and was okay. It is easy to pack leisure clothes, however I haven't found a way to neatly pack a sport coat in it. It would also be nice if the laptop sleeve was against your back.
