Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic international travel bag I got this before a trip to Ireland and couldn't be happier with performance. It was my cabin bag and I found all the pockets and compartments really useful. The backpack aspect was great when travelling around as I also had a small suitcase. The only down sides were that it was slightly too long to fit completely under the seat in front in economy class airplane and very easy to fill over the 7kg weight limit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After travelling the past few years, we realised what works and doesn't work for when we travel. I brought this bag for my brother as a replacement to the carry on luggage that he hated wheeling out in the narrow aisle of the plane, especially after a long flight. I like that the bag open ups like a suitcase and has all of the pockets at the top for easy access. It's super light and we can make the most out of the carry on luggage allowance. My coworker also purchased this bag after seeing my purchase because they too hate wheeling out luggage off the plane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent size I bought this for our regular 3 day travel away with work. Is ideal and can carry sufficient for more than 3-4 days. Great compartment separation for meds etc. Works so well i bought the 12ltr add-on as well. We were well looked after by Dan in the Napier store as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack I’ve ever owned Travelled to Japan with this for two weeks and it fit everything I needed! So many compartments and different zips, it’s amazing. Designed so smartly and they’ve thought of everything! Very comfortable to wear even when it’s packed full. I absolutely love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6 months backpacking I bought this about 12 months ago when I was first committing to backpacking thorough Europe. I managed 6 months backing through Europe with this as my only luggage. What a dream! No lugging heavy bags and cases around! No waiting for checked luggage! just pack and go! I managed to fit what I needed in it, in fact after approximately a week of travel I realised I packed too much. I even manage to pack in a souvenir or two along the way. It has plenty of space, while I admit it doesn't have as much volume as other bags it's design lets you make the most of it. Even if you aren't a minimalist you can make this bag work. I only wish the green had been available when I had bought mine. The grey is lovely but shows some travel marks after all i have put it through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything it Claims to be This is a fantastic bag! Bought for frequent international travel, it is lightweight, and spacious and the designers have thought of everything. Everything you aren’t using tucks, folds or zips away and the dimensions fit cabin baggage allowances perfectly. My only comment would be that IF you’re buying the matching ‘plus 1’ to clip on the front (which is a great idea btw), grab a couple small karabiners with it as it clips quite high up and close to your face, making fishing around in there for stuff under airport duress quite difficult. The karabiners just drop it down ever so slightly to look for your paraphernalia without having to unclip it and set it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cabin bag made from recycled plastic This bag is perfect if you want something to fit into overhead cabins (I flew Virgin Australia, Virgin Atlantic and EasyJet). Always refer to your airline baggage allowances as they are all a bit different. There is also a pocket for everything - shoes, laptop, travel wallet, keys. The straps are able to be zipped up and tucked away. There is also detachable strap if you wanted to sling it over your shoulder. The drink bottle compartment is quite small and I lost my drink bottle when it fell out. If you get the black version of this bag, then the main body of the bag is made from recycled plastic bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the required features Bought this as a Xmas present for grandson who will be traveling through Europe and America next year, he chose it so I guess it’s fit for purpose.
