Tough, versatile carry-on sized travel bag. Comfortable as a backpack, but definitely a suitcase first.
The stash-able backpack straps are very comfortable and well balanced. It was no trouble maneuvering a fully-loaded pack through a busy urban train station and my shoulders felt fine after a couple miles of walking around. the back panel is rigid enough for support, but doesn't feel stiff or awkward. Storage-wise, the main compartment is equivalent to a carry-on suitcase, fitting 3+ days of clothing easily. The shoe compartment intrudes a bit on the interior if you have boots in there, but sneakers still leave you with a ton of space. The larger front pocket has a well-protected laptop pocket, and there's plenty of room to stash a book and toiletry bag in there as well. Overall, this is a great bag for one-bag travel and I'm pleased with how comfortable it is to wear. Have only taken it on two trips so far, but it seems plenty tough and reasonably water-resistant.
The smallest front pocket can really only fit some pens/cables and is a bit hard to use for quick access. It'd be nice to have a pocket at the top of the bag for keys/wallet/etc... Having the laptop on the front/top of the bag makes it a bit awkward to open suitcase-style if you have all the rest of your electronics in there as well. The included shoulder strap doesn't have any padding, which is not a big deal but just something to be aware of.
