After extensive research I made the plung and ordered this back pack in the tree frog color. The online picture does not do it justice. The color is much darker and not as fusia as it appears in the picture. I'm traveling to Israel for 6 mo-1year and taking everything in just this pack! I read some online packing tips and arranged everything I wanted to take and it ALL fit on the first try! But the thing weighs a ton so I'll have to reevaluate my "needs" vs my "wants". I was impressed by how much it held though and the hip belt really helps with the weight.
I had so much fun discovering all the features!! I am 5"1 and was not sure how this pack would fit but every aspect of this pack is adjustable and I can not wait to see how it functions on my trip! The option of zipping the straps for check in at the airport looks great and there are two handles for easy carry as a duffle bag. There is even a feature where you can attach the daybag in front of you while carrying the main pack. It's kind of ackward but could come in handy if you find the pack getting too heavy. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and plan on getting many miles out of my new portable home!
