The Everest 18.5 inch Hydration Sling backpack is made with good quality, love the design, it's just a shame that it wasn't big enough for me. I choose it because it is easy to put on without any struggles, due to being disabled, walking with crutches and limited movement in one arm. Overall like the bag good, made well.
Son carries this for a school backpack because he thinks it looks cool. Only complaint I have is the normal sized folder doesn't exactly fit at the top. After a while it will bend a paper folder down on the corner. We have not tried it on any hikes. Plenty of pockets.
This was a nice compact product but I've seen similar sized bags with more storage than this bag. I think they could have created a bag with more storage and more pockets without increasing the overall size. The sling didn't fit comfortably either but that's more of a personal critique...others may think it fits fine. On a side note, Overstock charges $2.95 to ship to you which is fine and I accepted but they also say you can return the item to them with a Pre-Paid shipping label. That to me sounds like they pick up the return shipping charge which I later found out they don't. There are plenty of other online stores that charge nothing for shipping and return shipping. That seemed a bit shady to me and will not buy from Overstock.com anymore. Too many better options.
Great size, with just the right amount of compartments to keep things separated. I purchased my bad to keep emergency beach items in the back of the car. The size if just right for what I was looking for. I have not carried it much, but the quality seems good and I have not found any defects. So I am thinking this will last for some years to come.
