Rated4out of5byTFWTfromGood pack to replace my North Face ReconMy last daypack lasted me for the better part of 8 years and was looking to replace it. Knowing that I'm going to getting several years worth of use out of it, I wanted to pick the right backpack.
One of the requirements I was looking for was a daypack that's big enough to fit enough cloths for a weekend, but small enough to wear around during the way.
This pack fit the bill just right.
On a recent around the world trip from NYC-Frankfurt-Singapore-Yangon-Tokyo-Los Angeles-NYC, I made with just this backpack. I carried a total of 20lbs of which 5lbs was a laptop. I removed the hip belt as soon as the pack arrived because I've never had a use for them for these small day packs.
The overall quality is way better than comparable North Face branded backpacks I was looking at. The zippers are nice a sturdy. The side netting shows very minimal fraying even after the world loop.
The one thing I would like to see improvement on is to make the laptop easier to remove while the pack is full. This is why I didn't give it 5 stars
