Weighing 7.5 pounds before putting anything in, I found this bag to be a bit of a challenge when travelling long distances. Also found the middle compartment to have less volume than I anticipated.
None of the above are design flaws of the bag however, so I won't mark down the score just because it didn't suit certain scenarios. I will however list down the scenarios you would NOT use this for:
- If you're a hoarder of souvenirs, this is not the right bag for you. I found lengthy items were a challenge to fit into this bag.
- If you wear clothes that don't compress, this bag is not for you
- If you are travelling in a less intrepid manner (i.e going to new york for shopping), this bag is not for you. The empty weight of it alone will stop you from considering shopping.
So basically this bag is perfect for various scenarios - domestic ski trips, short holiday trips, backpacking. The material is extremely durable and waterproof.
