The bag is overhyped in my opinion. The 40L designation gives false impression the backpack can carry a lot of things. The main compartment holds a few items for a 3-4 day trip but is not suitable for longer trips. Also, it is uncomfortable to carry on the back if it is heavy. I found it challenging to carry it out at the airport, bus, subway when it's loaded to capacity. I find wheeled luggage to be more practical for my needs.

I'm going on a snowmobile work trip for 7 days. I fit all my needs in this bag ? You should start rolling your clothes and make better use of your space in your luggages.

Ordered the bag about 2 weeks ago. This evening it was delivered by Canada Post. No duties or taxes!

Bought a M/L and it doesn't fit me. If someone wants in Toronto I can sell at cost.

Thanks

I've buyed before seing this thread, that would have allows me to same more with the tip about changin canadian dollar to gbp. Too bad, it was 115$ with paid duty. Not too bad giving the fact that the same bag is 220$ (plus taxes ) at Sail.

Our goal is to go to our one month in Europe (Dolomites, Slovenia and Croatia) with only carry on. We will have 2 bags (Osprey, Mec Fastrack) and 2 carry on suitcase for 2 adults and 2 kids. We should be able to manage it.

Can someone show me good packing cubes for all those luggage ?

If you can only fit 3-4 days worth of items into a 40L backpack you're definitely over packing. Unless you're bringing tonnes of technical gear.

A 40L backpack is more than enough space for me to do a week long trip in Algonquin including food sleeping bag sleeping pad and tent.

Most people I encounter at work use this bag for month+ long trips easily.

I have no clue what you mean by the "40L designation gives the false impression" as if 40L is just a designation and not the volume of the pack and another designated 40L pack will give a "true impreasion" it can carry a lot...

I think this bag is great, but is a bit small for taller people. Fitting pants and long sleeve shirts with size 11 shoes was doable, but filled up quickly and no extra space for gifts. The Osprey Porter 46 is a good alternative.

I did a three week backpacking trip with this bag. Granted this bag's compartments aren't great and could have been designed much better, and the waist straps are annoying for everyday use, it's still a very good travel bag.
