I found this bag to be an absolute pleasure to use on a recent trip from the US to Belgium. I used it in conjunction with the packing cubes and the wash bag. It had plenty of room for a week's worth of clothes (including cold-weather stuff we needed for Belgium) and all my other travel odds-and-ends while still being comfortable to carry with me. I really appreciated all of the different easy-access pockets outside of the main compartment, which made it really easy to stow and retrieve various things I needed throughout my travels. The secret pockets behind the water bottle holders were great for stowing our extra cash without worrying it would be stolen or lost.
This is a carry on sized bag, but it’s huge! Here’s what I was able to comfortably fit inside: 5 t-shirts, 3 dress shirts, 5 pairs of underwear and socks, a pair of dress shoes, four pants, my laptop and chargers, and my washbag. For many people, that’s enough stuff to travel full time. Even with all that this backpack is allowed in the plane cabin with no problems. I’ve used this hiking in hot weather and the bag shows no sign of damage and my back wasn’t drenched in sweat. The padding really works! Definitely consider getting this backpack, it’s well worth the money.
Really delighted with this product. I use the Akra with the Vaga because you can move the laptop compartment between them which is really neat. Even with loads of stuff this bag feels comfortable on my back. When completely full, it does bulge and become a bit misshapen, but that’s better than having a fixed capacity and no stretch in the material. I like the clamshell opening and just the general high quality feel of the materials.
