I bought this pack as something for short day hikes (where I wouldn't be taking full camera gear) and weekend trips. I was a little wary when I first opened it, as the fabric seemed thin and the whole pack felt too lightweight (aka cheap). I couldn't have been more wrong. The main compartment is a true stuff sack and has taken everything I've thrown it's way. Quick weekend in Hong Kong (including a second pair of shoes)? Check. Winter weekend in the central Utah mountains (including an extra jacket)? Check. Quick trip to So Cal for a wedding (including dress clothes)? Check. Well, that last one was a stretch since I had to do a lot of ironing, but you get the point.
All in all, this is a great pack for the money when you're looking for an easy way to pack a weekend's worth of clothes and personal items (clearly not a backpacker's pack). Large main compartment, as well as additional top-side compartment for quick access to toiletries, etc. And, it all folds in on itself nice and neatly when not in use.
