My wife uses this everyday to commute back and forth to work and loves it. She has over a half mile of walking each way. The stowable hip belt is great for when she has heavier loads or when we take it hiking, but she does not need to use it or have it out all the time. Fits a standard laptop, paperwork, lunch and workout clothes. She really likes the air contact back for her trips to the train in the summer. It fit under the seat as a carry on in a plane. We just bought another as a gift for another family member and she recommends it to everyone who asks about it.

I have had Camelbak bladders for a years now and got this one for my wife. I like the quick release tube and the wide opening at the top. Easier to clean, but filling takes a little bit more effort but only minimal. It is also easier to dry with the wide opening. Just got another one as a gift for my brother in law so clearly I would recommend it to others.

Great backpack. I have taken it on many long day hikes and it accommodates everything a well prepared hiker and his wife need. The air contact back is nice but my back still gets a little warmer then the rest of me but it better then a standard pack. The bottom compartment is nice for separating gear. Have used it for travel and school as well. It works well but its elongated shape is not ideal for a laptop, books and papers.

These are great for car camping. My wife likes packing like items into the same bag in general, these make that easier and also provide convenient color coding, if you remember which color is which. They do allow for labeling as well. They seem sturdy. The definitely helped keep things in their place throughout the trip.
