This seems like an incredible pack for the price. I love the different pockets, the large hip pockets especially, and it seems to fit the length and curve of my back (which is a bit TOO curved, really). For reference I'm 5/8", somewhat long-waisted, and sort of "pear" shaped. My husband has an older backpack and this is SO much lighter. I also like the idea that it can squinch down to international carry-on size, I can definitely see myself using it this way. We did a global trip with travel-style flat-back backpacks and I will appreciate something that's more comfortable to wear while walking cities and train stations--for this sort of use packing cubes would be essential. No place for the laptop, but that's not really the intended use.

I ordered this and one other pack to try on and hoped for the best, as this is less than half of anything equivalent at our local outdoor store, which it would be great to support but all this stuff adds up. So far I like this backpack the best--however--

I still need to buy the rest of the stuff (sleeping bag, tent, etc), and load it up and see how it feels.
