I personally think the post important aspect of a pack is making sure that it's NOT a top loader. It's always so much more convienient to have a zipper going down the side or having a travel pack (the whole front panel zips down). I found out the hard way. It's just so frusterating accessing every thing from the top. Unless your hiking and going backcountry go for a travel pack.
I have been to: Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, New Zealand , Australia, Fiji, Costa Rica, United States, England, Ireland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland , France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Vatican, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Colombia, Mexico, India, Nepal.
Where to Next? Iceland!
