I have been looking for a backpack to serve a dual purpose, outdoor recreation and a school bag. Is this bag wide enough to fit a full-size textbook in the main compartment?
Absolutely, if you look at the pics up there, Mr Judd has a fuel bottle turned sideways, and what looks like a chow kit with a plate. Unless your book is gigantic then you should be good
I wouldn't use if for a school bag. You might fit 1 text book in there but not very easy. I have the Manta 20 and I know that 5 more liters wouldn't be big enough in it to fit a text book or 2. I'd shoot for the manta 30 if you want to use it for both.
