It is a great catch all for my books, travel pillow, water,etc
It holds a lot more than you think and is great for hikes as well
Easily fixable (like just cut it off), not a deal-breaker, especially for all the use we got out of it
stuff I could survive without if stolen
Nothing is safe from pickpockets, but it was great for 'stuff'
This was the perfect day tour backpack - lightweight and held everything I need for each day
