Would you use it as a bag for travelling?
LAVERNE K I have not used it for travelling, but it is the right size for doing so.
WILLIAM E I used it as a carry on when flying to New Zealand. Filled it with reading matter, cameras, some toiletries, a couple of pieces of clothing and a pair of Birks. The waist belt tucks out of the way, making it easy to handle in tight spaces and it is very light. The pack, however, is not large, so you won't be able to get a lot of clothing in it if that's all you are going to use on a trip. It was a great pack for day hiking once we got to New Zealand.
