The zip-off daypack provides additional storage and is perfect for carrying around town by itself.

A women's specific backpanel, hipbelt and harness system can easily be stowed and zipped away for a slimmer profile when traveling.

The bag checked home perfectly. I had a few small breakables that I packed in the center of the bag (as securely as I could) and everything arrived safely. But honestly any big breakables just ship it home, or just focus on your trip, you don't need to bring gifts back for everyone :)
I made it a goal to keep the bag weight below 30 lbs at the start of the trip, but the bag really wasn't bad to carry. If you stand too long just take off till your on the move again. It was really handy being able to put the small bag in front to reach it easier, but its much more comfortable for weight distribution to be attached to the main bag for the longer walks.
The bag can get a bit hot since there isn't great air flow on the back side (for the big and little bag), but since I don't have anything to compare it to I didn't have any complaints, it wasn't a big deal to me.
I did purchase the travel bags to help with compressing and organizing and I think that greatly helped keep the bag small and for maintaining weight distribution.
The smaller bag is great for daily use, but really I prefer a full sized regular backpack since the daily bag is a bit on the small side. But if you don't buy a lot of stuff then the small bag is good. I love the small bag has the collarbone strap that is adjustable also, makes it very comfortable!
FYI the Misty Gray is more of a light army green in my opinion.
Remember, bring half of what you think you need and twice as much money! Your back/hips will thank you for it!
This thing is a beast, holding way more stuff than you need for most vacations. It's heavy duty and feels durable, and it carries surprisingly well for something that is essentially a large duffel bag you can strap to your back. I appreciate that the entire top panel zips open, as it was easy to find everything quickly. I took it on a three week vacation where high temperatures ranged from 50-85 degrees F, and I fit everything I needed in the main compartment, including three extra pairs of shoes. However, it was huge, and when wearing it I really had no idea where the back of the pack was, and I needed a lot of open space to swing it onto my back (not great in trains or metros).
The smaller backpack, however, is kinda useless in many situations, as it's quite small and oddly shaped. I went on an afternoon hike and it barely fit my lunch, water, camera, and an extra layer. The outside pockets fit my 0.5 L water bottles, but would not have fit anything larger (like a 1 L Nalgene bottle). I never wore the small pack in front, though that does seem like a nice feature - in theory. But with such a small bag, I generally wanted a larger day bag to fit the stuff I needed each day, even on days that were mostly transit.
COLOR: Misty Gray is a greygreen (google sw 6181 for reference) so there, check it before you buy it. I personally love the color and was not disappointed that it was not black or neutral gray.
SIZE: I ordered an XS Fairview because the Small Farpoint (unisex version of this backpack) that I tried on in the store was a little large for me. Capacity wise, the XS 70L model is practically the same as the Medium 55L, barring an inch here and there.
