on 19 October 2014
I have had this backpack for about six months and thus far been impressed with it. I use it for a variety of purposes including packing my kit when I go rowing, long walks, and as a pack for several days' worth of clothing when I travel.
Waterproofing - I took this backpack on a 7 hour trek in moderate rain. Its contents remained dry. On several different occasions, it has been put to the test while I was cycling to/from rowing in torrential rain and performs slightly worse. The inside contents can get rather damp, but not soaked.
Capacity - I managed to fit 4 days' worth of clothing for a conference into this bag, and had room to squeeze in the conference material (several folders and a thin book) after that. Admittedly I didn't pack any extra shoes and am a bit of a fanatic on packing light, but I was impressed by the capacity of this seemingly small backpack. My main complaint capacity-wise is that the water bottle holder is slightly too small to be of use in holding a water bottle.
Comfort - I overheat easily and am very bothered by backpacks that give me a hot, sweaty back. This particular pack is comfortable and cool enough to wear when not stuffed to capacity and is one of the better backpacks I have owned in that respect.
Others - I am not a fan of the large logo on the pack
In general I would recommend this backpack.
