Great all-round travel backpackSimply love the multi-pockets, both inside and out, on this backpack. I can now put most things I need on a trekking trip in one pack:
From a tripod fastened with the bottom strap-on, to an umbrella in one of the external "pod" pocket for immediate access.
From a compressed ThermoBall jacket and an ipad in the back compartment, to room for an additional camera insert in the main compartment for a micro-four third camera.
One grumble thought is the bottom right external pocket opening is a way bit tight, so anyone with a larger pair of hand may find it uncomfortable to extract contents stored within.
However, it is still a great bag with well thought out pockets and organization panels for almost anything. Five stars.
