The actual bag itself is pretty fantastic. I have a couple loose threads on mine but they don't seem to have compromised the durability of anything. There are dozens of pockets (including a secret one inside a flap that I didn't even notice until halfway through my trip, perfect for storing documents) and it even has a divider in the middle you can use to separate your things in half if needed. There is a section for laptops also, but no padding which was only a minor issue for me.
I'm pleased to say the Equator delivers on all of these.
First impressions - I ordered orange/grey rather than the more common black, because I wanted to be able to spot it in a transfer bus pile. I wasn't disappointed. The orange/grey is attractive and the material, padded shoulder straps, buckles and stitching seem strong enough to take the punishment they're likely to receive on my travels.
The Equator has no wheels or rigid handles, which I was happy to sacrifice in return for the extra usable space. These things use up precious centimetres in the airline allowances. If you haven't noticed, space is all the more precious now that more people are taking cabin bags only to save hold baggage fees.
There are two compression straps on each side of the bag, so if your bag is bulging and you're concerned about it fitting in the airline's baggage frame, you have a chance to help it "breathe in" by tightening the straps (as long as there's nothing fragile in there of course)
The bag has plenty of pockets both internal and accessible from the outside. There's a hidden deep pocket inside, two mesh pockets on the side big enough for a 1L water bottle, and many more. If you like everything in its own place, you won't be disappointed.
The main compartment is large (no space wasted) and easily accessible, with a zip going round the top and both long sides. This makes packing and unpacking very easy, even if you're using cubes or carrying bulky items. I packed my size 11 walking boots (stuffed with smaller items) and had lots of space left for 3 full changes of winter clothes, toiletries, gadgets with chargers and a sweater.
The integrated rain cover works like the attached a hood of a rain jacket. It's just a thin shower-proof fabric skin with an elasticated hem, so you can quickly pull it out and stretch it round the bag to keep the worst of the wet off. I didn't use it, but I guess it's better to have the extra protection than not.
I opted for the Equator versus the more basic Cabin Max Metz bag, mainly because I wanted the extra pockets. If you're trying to decide between these two, I also bought a Metz bag a couple of weeks later for my son, so here's my brief comparison. The Metz is equally well-made (materials, straps, clips). The main compartment is similar in size to the Equator's and just as accessible. Again, no wasted space. It has compression straps, but no chest or waistband straps, so it might be a little less comfortable than this Equator to carry when packed. The other main difference is that it has fewer pockets. It is still a perfectly fine bag and arguable even better value for money than the Equator.
In summary, the Cabin Max Equator is a well-made good quality backpack, offering ample space for short to medium length trips and excellent value for money.
Without wheels it won't suit every user, but the padding and waist strap makes it a comfortable backpack when fully loaded. I particularly like the bright orange raincover - it has never been wet, but fantastic when you are trying to spot your bag at the airport.
Quality of the materials and manufacturing looks good, although the true test will take another few years of abuse ! But so far this is one of my favourite purchases.
