I bought this backpack for my two- week trip to Cuba. It has been a great travel mate, perfect for a short journey to the south. As it just fitted in the cabin luggage I did not even need to check in any additional luggage, which saved me money for my trip. The backpack is nice to wear and protected my stuff from dirt and rain. Even though it had quite a rough time it still looks brand new. Only downside is that the main pocket only opens on the top and with an additional zippper on its side so you need to dig sometimes. Still I would certainly recommend this backpack!
