Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing RFID security As I looked for a relatively inexpensive but comfortable and versatile backpack, I would have settled on this one if it's security features included RFID protection for credit cards--ideally incorporated in a small unobtrusive (ideallyt hidden) compartment within arm's reach without removing the pack. A locking zipper would also be an asset to secure the laptop compartment. Without living up to its security claims, this backpack does not stand out from all the competition among everyday packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought for Traveling Replaced my old North Face backpack with this pack. It's much lighter in weight and I love the central zipper lock location. Also it's really helpful that the laptop compartment is separate from the main so you don't have to flash your pricey device every time you open it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, well-made backpack - glad I bought it I bought this backpack (in black) for travel as well as in town adventures with a toddler w/ lots of stuff, and also for hiking in the mountains. I need a pack that is comfortable for long days and practical in all weather. This pack works well for urban adventures and holds its shape better than my top loading day-hiking backpack with all of its shock cord (that catches on things when traveling). The Afar pack is functional and versatile; stuff is easy to access. While I don't really need the computer sleeve (good to detox from electronics during hikes/travel), the padded sleeve does securely hold a 15" MacBook Pro and has the added advantage of creating a storage area for stuff that can benefit from being protected from impact when sliding in/out under airline seats, etc. - its also a good place for travel papers, magazines, items that like to lay flat, etc. I like that the Afar has locking compartments and an rfid protected area; wish the computer sleeve could be locked as well. CONS: I wish that the sternum strap could be adjusted upward at least another inch. The waist strap/hip belt could be more substantial, but at least it is there - nothing worse than walking all day with a load hanging off shoulders. I am small-framed and at first I was concerned about fit of sternum straps, but I gave the pack a chance and it fit better when fully loaded than when trying on empty. Prior to purchase I did a lot of research, and this pack was the only one that had travel and security features as well as practical features for the trail - covered, durable, easy-gliding zippers; reinforced bottom; and exterior mesh pockets on three sides. The plastic quick release buckles seem a little minimalist compared to what I am used to, but they can easily be replaced if they fail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light durable Will use for travel, wish you could hide the straps, have more protection at the bottom. Does not have too many unnecessary pockets like many other backpacks. Have not tested, but seems durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great complimenting piece Purchased this backpack in the tan/olive to compliment the 26" Afar wheeled duffle for a trip to Ireland. It was large enough to handle all of my carry-on's for the flight. The side pockets handled the water bottles that we brought along. Did find that it could use some extra pockets for smaller items but other than that it was great. Love the fact that all of my Eagle Creek pieces match so it makes it easier keeping them together. Compared to other backpacks of equivalent size and quality I think this one was a bit pricey but since it has a lifetime guarantee it might end up being worth the extra cost.
