Light & small scale - handy and versitile
Verified Buyer Reviewed by walkabout from WI on Sunday, January 3, 2016
So far - zippers and material seem pretty tough for the VERY light weight nature of this pack. Seems like solid construction too. For under fifteen dollars I paid - it's a dandy pack. Not sure I'd want to pay much more though, It is a little smaller than I expected. Back panel is only 10.5 inches wide by 20 inches tall. Lightly padded and slightly curvy straps are about 1.5 inches wide. Main compartment just a bit bigger than a big pound or maybe pound and half size bag of potato chips. If you're a big guy, or wearing bulky clothes, it might be hard to use - BUT it DOES pack down small or VERY small - so should be great for an "extra" pack. When fully expanded, it has an interior pocket at the top - handy for keeping wallet/phone etc easy to access - which the whole pack can be stuffed into for storage. You can also stuff the main back pack into the top of the waistpack - and still have the whole waistpack open and easy to use. While not really big enough for serious dedicated shopping trips - it should be great for taking out when I want to travel light - but still have potential to pack some stuff home if it turns up fortuitously!
