Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This review is about 5 years late approximately but what good is a review without having a solid foundation. I purchased this bag while I was stationed in Korea. I can't honestly remember which travel I purchased this for and whether it was for the 2 weeks I was in Australia or the 36 days I was traveling through South East Asia. Either way, the bag has been literally around the world with me. I have taken it to Europe, Russia, Kazakhstan, Dominican Republic, you name it...And the best part is that it 95% goes as a carry on. If it's not as a carry on it's because I felt lazy and just wanted to check it; not because I was forced to. If one knows how to properly pack, this will hold a ton of stuff. I recently got a few of the packing bags from Eagle Creek and it works wonders. I can only say that I wish I had gotten the 70L when I got this a few years ago. The day pack has been a little blessing in disguise at it's also been a great companion with the bag during walks around the cities and just basic tourist sight seeing needs. The day pack got a lot more use as I had used it for a daily work bag as well to bring binders, schedules, books, 15 inch mac, etc to and from work. I would def recommend this bag for any of those travelers out there that want something that's just right for flights and doesn't require a check in. I have never had issues with TSA or being forced to check my bag. I just recently purchased a Nebula Pack and it will be my go to combination of bags; the Farpoint 55/w daypack as well as the Nebula. Both went on a weekend trip with me and neither were checked luggage. I'll be taking this combination on a two month trip through Israel, Russia, China and Mongolia as I traverse the Transmongolian Rail. Have no doubts that this will meet all my needs.

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

I'm usually one not to write reviews unless they are bad...typical human nature I guess, but this pack is amazing. I can't believe that this pack doesn't have more reviews. It's a great comfortable fit and carries a ton of stuff. I needed a new pack as I planned on taking a trip for two months and needed something that was comfortable with my Osprey Farpoint 55 and daypack (while the daypack is great), I needed about 35L more for packing stuff. I was using a SOC backpack that I acquired from a few deployments but the weight displacement on it made it very uncomfortable. The Nebula is great for it. Carries a 15 inch Mac with ease, can't even tell the computer is in the bag. The computer had it's own fancy protected compartment. I just went on a weekend trip with my Farpoint 55 and had my laptop, books for a class I am taking, chargers, kindle, ipad, gopro, DSLR, portable charger and much more and the distribution of weight was awesome. Of course with that much the bag was heavy but no issues carrying it as a front loader while the main pack was on my back. I would recommend this for just about anything. It will replace my 15L daypack that I used for work and travel and the SOC military bag. My go to travel will now consist of the Farpoint 55 and Nebula. I had ordered the Stratos 36L but I just didn't like the feel on that one and it didn't quite meet my personal needs.

No issues with travel, fits under the seat of a plane with ease.
