I went on a 2 week adventure trip in Costa Rica, and it was strongly suggested I bring a backpack. I'm a retired woman and went to school long before kids used backpacks for books. But I bought one of these, and it did the job. I was traveling on a van with long rain forest treks, not hiking through the Grand Canyon, so I didn't need one that expanded into many separate compartments. This one allowed me to carry my laptop, camera, various cords and charges, rain gear, extra shoes, etc. The only negative thing was, the net pockets on the outside weren't deep enough to hold a water bottle.
