I bought this backpack for a two week solo trip in Thailand. Since I had international transfers and multiple plane flights on small planes in Thailand, I really didn't want to lug a suitcase. I bought a compression bag for my clothes (by eagle creek... essentially giant zip lock bag) to maximize space, and managed to fit 6 t-shirts, 6 pairs of socks/underwear, two shorts and two swimsuits all into the front compartment. This was more than enough clothes for the 15 days with the help of hotel laundry service (some hotels were giving me 2 items per day for free). The back compartment held my toiletries, camera, kindle, chargers, and eventually small nicknacks I picked up along the way. The extra pockets were great for quick access to phone charging cables, and the back small pocket was perfect for securing passport and wallet when needed. I managed to pull off this photo trip with just my Leica and an iPhone, not bringing a laptop or iPad which inevitably would have distracted me from my trip. But if I wanted to bring it there would have been room to add either or both to the sleeve. Overall, I was blown away that it worked so well, and look forward to taking this bag on my future adventures.
