Default The North Face "Back Track"

So I think I settled on a pack: The North Face "Back Track." I can not find much info about this on any sites (reviews, etc...). This suprised me as I thought TNF would be popular. It is a 70L (50L available)including a rather small daypack, but seems quite nice.

At first I was going to get the Grand Voyage or Ultimate Explorer, but this just seemed like more pack, but smaller. I also looked at Osprey and Asolo.

Anyhow, just letting you all know that this pack is out there and I think quite nice. Also, those who have seen it, what do you think? Am I missing something. Just seems like a much sturdier pack than most out there for similar price. (I paid 279 CAD)

it a good travel pack for sure, a little top heavy and beefy instead of slender though, especially with the day pack loaded and attached

I would wear the daypack on your front so you don't have excess weight away from your body (plus it is harder to steal that way)
