Does this model have the iPad sleeve in the main compartment?
Carries as nicely as any messenger using the supplied shoulder strap. Tons of room (think Jansport Classic type of room). Loads more like a backpack than a messenger due to the taller size. Does great as a lumbar pack; barely feel the weight at all (my test cargo weighed in at 13 lbs). The straps on the bottom are good to hold a windbreaker type jacket, small light tarp, etc. while the front shock cord can also hold about the same. If you intend to load this out to capacity, the Mountainsmith Srappettes would be a great add on. I use this pack for both my work commute and for hiking so far; I've had a load out for a light overnighter but haven't had the weather to try it out yet (you're not taking your sleeping bag or wool blanket with this pack). I'm happy to say it's completely at home in the woods or the city....

We have purchased about 10 of these Mountainsmith TLS Daypacks over the past 5 years. Without exception they have been well constructed, durable and very handy. They are all still in use. Some have been used daily for a couple of years under trying conditions throughout the world. This is the larger size 488 cu in. Highly recommend this pack.Read More
This bag is awesome! I'm a research tech and I do lots of lab and field work. I use it as my everyday "purse" and its wonderful. No issues with the zippers or the bag liner. I do have one small problem with it, and it is that there is a lot of excess strap material so it is a one size fits all, but I'm a fairly small person so I have long excess ties kind of hanging around. This is not helpful when running through wild blueberry patches to catch bugs. Other than that its great! No issues with water penetrating in the rain as well. I would buy another one its that good.Read More

What to Pack for Africa's Highest Peak
Imagine that you are planning a trip that will take you from the equator to Antarctica in seven days. Now imagine that you have to limit the amount of gear you pack to 35 pounds or less. The task is getting more complicated. What kind of luggage would you choose and how would you pack for a trip that encompasses such extreme changes in climate and altitude? When Erica Davis, a paraplegic athlete, and Tara Butcher, a physically challenged athlete, climb Africa's highest peak, they will have to answer exactly those questions. The challenge: Mount Kilimanjaro rises from nearly sea level all the way up to 19,330 feet. The trail climbs from the hot bushland through rain forest, moorland, alpine desert and arctic glaciers up to the rocky Uhuru peak. A climb like Mt. Kili presents special challenges when it comes to luggage, clothing and gear. Being prepared for the weather and temperature extremes is a necessity, but it's also important not to pack too much. There is a 35-pound weight limit to each piece of luggage carried by a porter. Most climbers pack one 35-pound capacity bag to go up with a porter and one small daypack to carry up themselves. The daypack: Erica and Tara will have 7 days to summit Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro. As they pass from one ecological zone to the next, their needs will change and so will the contents of their daypacks. Each day Erica and Tara will repack their daypacks in anticipation of the specific challenges of the day's journey. In general, their daypacks will include things like water, snacks, dry clothing, waterproof gear and sunscreen. The importance of keeping clothing and gear dry cannot be overstated. When choosing a daypack, a small to medium backpack made of lightweight, moisture-resistant material that comes with a removable waterproof shell will be ideal. It's also helpful if the backpack has convenient access to a water bottle compartment or can accommodate a water bladder. Plenty of pockets, zipper compartments and hooks are also handy. What to pack: A sturdy but lightweight water-repellant duffel bag with a capacity of about 35 pounds is ideal for the trek to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The bag needs to have room for plenty of layers of breathable, moisture-wicking clothing and layers of fleece clothing, as well as a waterproof layer. To save space, it's a good idea to pack clothing that does double duty, such as pants that easily convert into shorts. Aside from clothing, the climb will also require accessories like sunglasses, hats and gloves, plus equipment like trekking poles and a headlamp, as well as toiletries like sunscreen, insect repellent and a first-aid kit. Support the Challenged Athletes Foundation: Overstock.com and the C.H.E.K Institute are co-sponsoring Erica and Tara's climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in order to raise awareness for athletes with physical challenges who wish to participate and compete in sports. Portions of the proceeds will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). CAF raises funds to give physically challenged athletes the opportunity to stay active and competitive in the sports they love. To show your support for physically challenged athletes like Erica and Tara, donate now to the Challenged Athletes Foundation for the Fit 4 Kili Climb.
