Great bag for relatively short trips. A few minor annoyances...

Pretty much everything about this bag is great, from the materials to the thoughtful design. The end pocket and the interior pockets are particularly well placed. The strap system works surprisingly well, and the size is excellent for a long weekend (or a week, if you pack light!). Nice beefy zippers, too.

The only design element I question: what's the point of having the "waterproof" type material on just the top of the bag? Most similar bags from the North Face or Patagonia are made entirely out of the water resistant material, which makes much more sense. This bag would seemingly be just as good without ANY of the thicker, waterproof material, IMHO.

The other niggles are that the arc of the main-pocket zipper is so tight, it can sometimes be tricky to get the zipper to run smoothly around the corners. But if you're careful, it's fine. Also, why does the logo have to be SO huge!?

But, in light of the fact that this bag is also like $100 less than the above-mentioned bags... I'm not really to worried about these small complaints.

It's great, get one, you'll like it.
