misread the description and reviews

For some reason I thought that the bottom could be zipped off and both backpack and fanny pack could be used separately. The backpack has to be stuffed into the fanny pack and therefore the fanny pack has little room for anything else. This would be great for traveling and buying things at the deli for a picnic or shopping for purchases to take back to the hotel or cruise ship. It is not for day trips hiking when you need to pack water or other heavy items. It is well made, very light and packable as an extra source to carry things.
