Rated4out of5byfromGreat Day PackThis pack replaces a smaller pack I was using that just didn't seem to hold enough or organize things very well. That's no longer an issue since the Traverse 30 has plenty of room and several zippers and pockets so that everything has a place. I am petite (5'1") and while the bag fits well it is still a little "long" on me. I'm looking forward to putting many miles on it.

Rated5out of5byfromSo glad I got this backpackI've used the backpack so far for biking trips, overnighters, and slightly longer trips. Planning on using it for camping and hiking in the future. It's a great bag; durable, holds a LOT (I read that it was meant for day trips... which is true, but depending on how much stuff you pack, you could totally use it for longer trips, as I did myself). Also, I got the older style instead of the most recent style, and I LOVE it. It's so much more attractive than the newer style (sorry, REI). It even has a built-in rainguard at the bottom, which I wasn't aware of until I bought it. And the pockets are a great design, allowing you to hold as much as possible. My ONLY complaint so far is that the meshing on the arm straps makes for wearing it with a tank top a little bit uncomfortable; it irritated my shoulders a little bit. But wear a t-shirt, and problem solved. Also, note that this irritation was with a full, heavy bag, so the irritation would probably be nonexistant with less weight.

Rated5out of5byfromAMAZINGI use this pack for day hikes and for commuting to and from work every day on my bike. Super comfortable and the perfect size. Waterproof cover is great when weather turns for the worse.

Rated1out of5byfromSpecial Buy Not so SpecialI tried on the women's Traverse 30 in the store and then "hinted" for my birthday. :-) But what my kids purchased online was not the same Traverse 30 as the one in the store! The pocket configuration was not the same, it only had one hip belt pocket, the hip belt was several inches shorter so I could barely get it buckled, the materials seemed flimsier, and the back padding/support was not the same. It was clearly a lower-end product for the outlet. I returned it to the store and got the one I originally tried on (which isn't even listed online now in the women's version). If you compare this one to the men's orange Traverse 30 listed online, you can see that they are clearly different backpacks, whereas in the store they were identical except being tweaked for a women's fit. That one I love. This one? Not so much.

Rated5out of5byfromAwesome BagLove this bag! I needed a bag to fit my office clothes and an extra set of workout clothes and lunch/snack for the day. This bag is the perfect size (one overnight) and is super comfy for commuting :) Weight distribution, chest and waist straps make a big load easy to carry. Very happy overall.
