Designed for the office, not the trail

I was blown away by the reviews and had high hopes. But when I first used this pack, I was disappointed. I got this mostly for day hiking in the woods. Frankly, it has too many pockets, too many zippers, and way too much padding. If the padding were removed I could probably fit 30% more gear in it. It's subdivided into many (mostly small) spaces. To find the camera I routinely went through 3 zippers. To find my water bottle, 2 zippers. Car keys - well something that size could be in any of eight compartments. This is designed for lugging laptops and tablets around, not for hiking. Next time, I'll buy something more suitable - like Mountain Hardware gear.
