Just be careful though. As it says the bag is good for overnight, you might need something bigger for a couple of days or more. Also not so easy to put clothes in the storage compartment. The zip could be bigger.
Materiales y el precio acorde a la calidad
1) It fits under airplane seats.
That's probably the most important thing. I should specify that the 5 flights I've taken it on were all United Airlines. As I remember, Delta has much less underseat/leg room, so I'm not sure it would fit under a Delta seat.
2) I really like the bright orange lining. It makes it much easier to spot items than if it were black or navy. And the lining is a very lightweight fabric. I'm not sure how well it will hold up over time, but since I use packing cubes and I don't usually overpack, I'm thinking that is less stress on the lining.
3) The backpack straps are quite comfy
4) The part against my back was also very comfy, and there's an air channel to the design, which helps prevent one's back from becoming a sweaty mess while traipsing from one airport terminal to the next. It worked. My back was significantly less sweaty than with my previous backpack.
5) I like the little padded pocket that goes against the small of your back. It's pickpocket-proof, and fits comfortably against the curve of my spine.
6) I didn't need the single shoulder strap that came in addition to the backpack straps. But I thought it was a nice touch to include it.
7) I like the clamshell opening of the main compartment. I pack with packing cubes, and that makes it so much easier to put them in.
8) There was PLENTY of room for everything I needed for a 4-day weekend. I packed a pair of lightweight pants, a pair of shorts, a very lightweight dress, 3 lightweight short-sleeved shirts, socks, underwear, a swimsuit, a pair of sandals, a tablet, charging cables and headphones, some food for the plane, a very small purse, my quart bag of shampoo/toothpaste/deodorant, and an inflatable pillow.
I carried the water bottle.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
1) TOO MANY LARGE ZIPPERED COMPARTMENTS! It took me until the 4th trip before I really figured out which zippers opened which pockets, because sometimes I'd confuse which pocket held which items. Two zippers are top-only access to larger pockets that ALSO have all-around zippers as well. That drove me nuts. I didn't need those extra zippers, since I could already access those compartments.
There is also one section that is a bit shorter than other sections, and I actually "lost" my phone under it. I had placed it on top, figuring if it slipped, I knew what section it was in. But I didn't realize that one side extended under that short section. So when I put my hand down the OTHER side, looking for my phone, I didn't feel the short section, and thought I'd lost my phone, or that it had been lifted.
2) The water bottle pocket is so tiny, I couldn't even get me S'ip by S'well 12-oz bottle reliably in there. I'm not sure what kind of refillable non-plastic bottle WOULD fit.
3) A minor quibble: While I liked the organizer pocket, it was very shallow. I would have preferred a deeper outside pocket, like what the Tom Bihn Synapse backpacks have. That way, I can fit the little packing cube that has my chargers and headphones, and have easy access to it when it's under the airplane seat.
I had to use one of the larger compartments for my little packing cube, and it kept slipping down to the bottom, and then I'd have to drag the entire backpack out from under the seat in order to get my headphones, and then my charger.
THINGS I'M NEUTRAL ABOUT
The fabric is not my favorite. I actually don't like any of the colors, maybe because I don't like the fabric? I got the blue, and it's ok, but the heather-y fabric looks like fake denim. It held up well for 5 plane flights, though, and it seems to be fairly lightweight.
So, I took off one star because I was really annoyed by all the zippers, and the other star because of the lack of separate water bottle pocket.
It's a very good backpack otherwise, especially at this price point.
Neither the weekender nor the overnigher can pack much; frankly, the cargo space of the Weekender was better suited to overnighting, the Overnighter is essentially an ultra heavy-duty laptop bag that happens have shoulder straps.) This bag's primary and only purpose by its design is gear protection. There's simply not enough packing space, "on the road" features, nor light enough to be considered a backpack, let alone a travel pack.
+Durable build in bag material, very padded. Excellent choice where gear protection is the primary use. Strong zippers.
+Roller sleeve for putting on suitcase is well made.
+Excellent padding for back, very good offset to avoid sweaty backs.
+The outermost compartment layout with lots of zippable pouches was a piece of design genius. I wish I could put it on a different bag. Really awesome. Don't change a thing there.
+zippable water bottle bungee mesh (and compartment)on the outside side is a good feature
+nifty zippable stash pockets, well hidden (two"between the main compartments," 1 in the luggage holder tunnel)
-Both are stuuuuupidly heavy due to the very thick padding they jammed in every dividing wall. Even internally, mind you, between its own compartments. Even the Overnighter is too heavy to start with. I like to protect my gear in a travel backpack, don't get me wrong, but not at the cost of having a brick strapped to me all day when it's not providing extra storage for it. I repeat: neither of these are travel backpacks. The Overnighter isn't a suitable day pack by capacity, the Weekender barely is (and that's putting aside the weight issue).
-The zippers have a lock loop, but it locks to an anchor metal hoop sewn into the side with a fabric link. Could be snipped with toenail clippers, so what's the point? Zippers that lock to each other are a better deterrent and defense against opportunity snatches - any bag can be broken into, the key to decent bag security is it's not easy or fast to do it without something drastic like slashing the bag (which hotel maids and petty crooks, etc. tend not to do in quick grabs.)
-The zippers are LOUD metal that clang - and remember, it's not double-zippered per track and then hitting each other, it's single zipper per track. So there's zero justification for all this constant noise from every single zipper (and there's a lot of them).
-no waist strap or modular loops, though does have sternum strap. That's a big omission for a travel pack.
-Awful attachment loops for shoulder straps in the sense that they're very thin plastic. Are they insane? For how sturdy the rest is, this was a shock. It's a cool idea for how to hide the shoulder straps to make it more briefcase-like. Needs to be aluminium here. Blowing one of these out is a pending catastrophe that's guaranteed to happen and that'll see you miserable and hand carrying stuff instead of enjoying your trip. It's a pretty stupid oversight.
I've received several compliments on the bag when taking it to work. It's probably larger than what most would need for a day to day work bag, but as I am in the midst of a project that requires a large binder, as well as a laptop and various other gear, it's a life saver.
The front panel is very well organized. SO far the only downside is that, because I've had to put the bag in use quicker than expected I haven't really had time to think the organisation through and because of the many panels and pockets things got lost. It took me a week to find my cough syrup again, because I'd quickly shoved it in a pocket which wasn't what I thought it was.
Unfortunately at the airport before I had even departed the strap broke (picture 1) and I was stuck for 8 days with a broken backpack. After 3 more days of travel I noticed the interior pocket was separating and coming undone (picture 2). This backpack has a great design and could be 5 stars, but the shoddy manufacturing of AmazonBasics drops it to 1 star(0 if I could)
