A keeper . . . barely

I've been searching for a pack that is perfect for me, but there doesn't seem to be one that quite meets all my requirements. I'd send this back if I hadn't sent 3 or 4 back already. I'm finally settling. The top pocket is extra difficult to re-zip because of the protective flap over it. Even though it is highly adjustable, I can't ride my bike with it on and look up without the frame hitting the back of my helmet. It is difficult to access the contents without fully unzipping. HOwever, it IS nice that it unzips all the way to the bottom. It IS highly water resistant even without the included handy raincover that stows away at the bottom of the pack. And there is enough space for a minimalist overnight, or bike commuting to work with a change of clothes. The color is pretty awesome too - not pink or teal like so many of the other women's packs. And what a great price. I'm sure it will last for years too.
