Got this for a touring holiday on china , and was perfect . Could load it up for internal flights , and then use it as a backpack for the sight seeing . Plenty of pockets and compartments very comfortable on the back and shoulders , and was not once questioned about the size or weight of the bag .

Took on board a Ryanair flight - held enough Shorts/Tshirts/extra shoes, towel ,etc for a week. Lots of great pockets - 2 are easily accessible from the outside - ideal for magazines, paperwork ,etc.. Zips appear to be good and chunky enough. Use it just once and it pays for itself on the hold-baggage charge..
