I pirchased this bag after seeing my friends similar bag(the switchback 25) his daughter used hers for 4 months in India, after seeing how thought out the entire system was and that her bag still looked like new i had to get one for my next upcomming trip. Only difference in the bags, the switchback has 2 side pouches for water, a set of shoulder cary straps for the main bage, and additional hold down buckle straps to secure the small pack to the large one, the traverse has the zipper only to connect it to the large pack. All these differences wont affect my use. What a great deal thanks "O"
