by fromgood but... I love the color (electric yellow shows up when I'm commuting by bike), the compartments, everything except that the backpack is about 2" longer than fits me. I'm a tall woman but I have a relatively short torso. If this is you too, this may not be the pack for you.

by fromI would buy this backpack a second time The backpack is a looker. Its better than those north face backpacks. It holds my plentiful amount of school items but is very structured so it hard to put the items in. I use the backpack for everyday use.

by fromgreat backpack; one shortcoming Great for everything I haul to and from work (notebook, iPad, Kindle, rain jacket, etc.). Just wish water bottle pockets had drawstrings (I ended up sewing/gluing velcro closures).

by fromAwesome backpack This is a downright amazing backpack. It is everything in one package. It's lightweight yet sturdy. It has a removable chest strap, this is one of my largest gripes with other backpacks. It's able to carry all my work essentials, portable electronic and accessories, and also gym clothes and shoes. The only con I would have is the side pockets aren't very secure.

by fromExcellent investment I purchased this bag to hike the Barr Trail to the top of Pikes Peak and it exceeded my expectations. It's not a large bag, compared to others, but it has a surprising capacity and is easy to use, is rugged, and looks very nice. After hiking Barr Trail I liked the bag so much that I made it my day-to-day bag for work and it's proven its excellence for hauling around laptops and accessories as much as energy bars and hiking supplies. An added bonus, the laptop sleeve is the perfect size for a 3L hydration pack.

by fromJust the daypack I was looking for! I was looking for the perfect daypack for a trip out of the country. Needed something lightweight & durable that would carry all of my 'traveler' essentials such as camera, water bottles, 10 essentials, kid's stuff, etc. Looked at all of the packs at two REI, [@] and [@] and picked this Patagonia. Was everything I needed! FYI, I got the Tuscan Olive, NOT the pink one!
