Familiarity: I've used it several times

I originally purchased this in the large size for my toiletries before a recent trip to Iceland. When I got I quickly realized this was way too big for the few items toiletry items I have. But, it quickly was converted over to hold my GoPro camera and all those annoying little adapters for it that seem to scatter everywhere. It was perfect for that! I may purchase another one of these in the Small size to put my toiletries in.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got sick of dealing with a bunch of cheap duffels that constantly fall apart. When preparing for a recent Iceland trip I decided to buck up and get one of these NF duffels(L). It has the perfect amount of room for multi-week trip abroad. It has quality construction so I don't have to worry about it falling apart when spewed out onto the baggage carrier. I can stick a tripod or trekking poles in it without worrying about them poking through the sides. The backpack straps are nice for carrying it, but I wish they also provided a single should strap as on option too.

I had a TKA 100 that I love that got melted from being too close to the exhaust on my leaf mulcher. This one is much different though. Fit is snug(unless I am gaining wt over the holidays? Bough a large and I am 5'10" ~190 lbs ) and the collar is cut in an odd fashion. I was going to return it, but the box and receipt got tossed.

I was looking for a backpack that I could carry-on to plane and use for a two-week trekking trip to Thailand. The air-flow back was very appealing because I sweat alot and Thailand is quite hot and humid. The problem was the arc in the frame was a concern though when cramming it into a overhead. The arc also made it more rigid so you couldn't stuff it as much. I really hated to, but I ended up returing it and wound getting a Osprey Kestrel 38 which looks like a better fit for my purpose and I got a few extra L's of space. My wife got a Osprey Talon 44 which is even better for carry-on travel. Very light and alot of room and still makes it in the carry-on restrictions. Osprey is a great pack and they are a great company. We called them and they were extremely helpful.

One other thing...they are supposed to be improving the Atmos next year so it should be even better.
