This backpack is balanced and compact enough to run with - no swing or klunking as the waist belt and sternum strap actually work. The back is padded but ventilated so plenty comfortable. This bag is also very versitle, loops for poles or ice ax and even a mount for skis (I have not tried the fit ), removable tarp to fasten your helmet, and the waist belt is removable should you just want to use it for school. I bought this bag for [$] with the double discount - well worth the price.
Best Uses: Airport carry on, Day hike or run
Pros: Ballanced, Durable, good zippers, Stylish, Versatile
