My reason for getting this piece was that I was "hostelling" 12 days thru Scotland. I wanted something "not too big" but "big enough" that I could back-pack or roll and had a detachable day pack. I got all of that with my Deuce-Deuce! We had a great trip together! I had another advantage also in that my D-D was blue and much easier to pick out on the luggage return from the ubiquitous black luggage! Thanks!!!
