I'm very interested in this pack, however I wonder how sturdy it really is. Can it carry two 1.5L bottles of water on a day trip or is the bottom to weak? How large is the main compartment only without the additional pockets?
Despite the lightweight of the Axios 25, it carries weight really well. It's got a ribbed internal back panel that is light, but offers good support and protection from the contents. The main pocket has room for water bottles jacket, lunch, camera and a few other items
Brandon is correct. You will have no problem carrying 2 1.5L bottles plus more in this pack.
