This is the perfect bag to be able to throw in enough to get you through a good weekend of biking. with room for some light gear as well as your tools and bike essentials this is exactly what any bike packer wants on his back. It is also perfect when you are going out with some casual friends who do not have all the needed back up tools for any snags on the trail because of the extra room. love the bag.
"A unique design that mostly works well."
A top-notch, unique pack. I liked the idea of having access to the main compartment from the top/front, as well as from the bottom. It makes packing and accessing larger items easier. For me, that is my camera and lenses. I love the Airscape backpanel. It doesn't cool as well as the Osprey design that keeps the pack off your back, but it is much more stable, which works great for mountain biking.What needs improvement is the function of the zipper on the access panel to the lower portion of the main area. These basically required two hands to use, which could be frustrating. The same issue was present on the hip belt pockets.
