This backpack was purchased to use for my international travel. I take this, a carry on (which I check) and a messenger bag and "I'm good to go" for three weeks of engaged, portable fun. (I am a 60 year old female.) It works like a charm in a variety of ways: nicely 'stuffable' for the flight (carrying the essentials and a change of clothes (in case of luggage loss); highly portable as a day pack while sightseeing;and, I feel comfortable travelling through "pickpocket havens" knowing my bag is secure and that it sends the message that I'm unwilling to be 'victimized'. While it has a small top opening and care has to be taken when opening the zipper fully (as should be expected in using any item like this), I think it's versatility, the security and the light weight of this item make it my GO TO bag. Overstock had the best price for this item!!!
