This is by far one of my favorite pieces offers that I own. It is also one of my most used pieces.i use iffor everything from camping to downhill mountain biking. I am able so hold my fly Rod in a side bottle pocket and it stats secure with a clip.i love the quality of these packs compared to camelbak. Everything used in this pack is very durable and your hydration tube can be fed through the left OR right strap. This canbe very useful I some situations. The magnetic clasp is perfect for biking because it is always in the same spot on your chest(not flailing around). It's also very easy to clean and doesn't let anything grow in it easily. The airflow/support in the back functions perfectly. I highly reccomended that you buy this. You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. This will definetly last you many years with minimal care.
Scored this bag on some points and am glad I did. This pack has handled everything I've thrown at it, except rain that is, and quickly became my go-to. I use it for commuting to work, day-hiking, long range road biking and going to class. It easily swallows my 13" laptop along with notebooks and textbooks and asks for more. What I really love about the bag is the small top outer zipper pocket, which I use to hold glasses/sunglasses on my commute and enough snacks and maps for the trail. What tops that? The dual zipper pockets on the front of the bag. They are separated, which makes them functional. I use one side for a rain jacket and the other for dirty clothes during summer hikes. Awesome.
