A good, solid backpack..I just wish the shoulder straps were more comfortable.This is a really nice pack. The fabric is really sturdy and it holds ALOT.I travelled to Europe with this bag and I was able to take everything I needed in it, plus some and it was much easier to travel with than what my friends were using. I've never had troubles with the roll top coming undone, like some reviews I read said and I didn't really mind the fact that the pack is top loading. Some times it was a bit of a pain because something I needed was all the way in the bottom, but overall not big of a deal. My only complaint is when I pack it full, the shoulder straps can be a little uncomfortable, since they are a bit on the thin side.

Great Fit & Great ColorThis backpack is made of super strong fabric, has great pocket placement, great rolltop with removable pocket! I love the merlot color as well! I'm 5'9" 140 pounds and the medium was a great fit! Also the hip belt and shoulder straps are super comfortable and breathable :)
