Bought this for a 3.5 week trip to Canada with carry on only for domestic flights and I love it! I stuffed it to the brim and the zippers held out without any issues. I was a bit unsure before my trip but I'm happy to say it survived everything I put it through. It's great because it's small enough to not be too annoying while catching public transport and to be a "carry on" item on planes but big enough to hold everything I needed. I carried it on to two Air Canada flights along with my "personal item" (a small backpack) and had zero problems. I can't wait to use this bag again!
Used this on a 4 week trip to UK and France. Managed to pack light, 7kg, so took it as carry on luggage. As we used public transport it was great for using as a backpack leaving hands free to deal with tickets at barriers etc. Front flap was great for putting in the clear bag with toiletries for easy reach if customs needed to check. Used the packing pods for the first time. Great idea to keep everything organised. As this bag is unstructured the pods kept it fairly rigid. Would be happy to use this on future trips.
I had to return the item because one shoulder strap was threaded the wrong way which allowed the strap to slip.. it could not be worn as a backpack for this reason.however in every other respect it seems fine so I would be happy to reorder this item and may well rate it highly when I do get the working item.Then the manufacturer fixed it with a delivery of the next model up which was sent promptly and without any fuss. The new improved bag is excellent quality and value. I would buy any of these Hynes products again without hesitation.
Very spacious backpack, perfect as a carry on option for those who don't want to take a wheelie suitcase. It opens up like a suitcase does, so that you don't have to remove everything to get something at the bottom. It also comes with three travel organiser pouches to keep your backpack tidy. Overall great value for money.
The backpack arrived within the time quoted. It is exactly as quoted and beautifully manufactured. It is a quality item and should last for years. I was surprised how large it is so will fit lots of "stuff." I am very happy with my purchase.
The description is accurate and it was delivered on time.Happy with the service. Haven't started using it yet to comment on the comfort levels Great product so far and seems just the right size for domestic travel
