- "Fits in carry-on compartment!"
The bag is great; it has all the pockets, belts, space, and clips you need. It's durable, stays clean, and a looker. Dries fast, COMFORTABLE, and its top storage pocket detaches to make the bag smaller (Carry-on travel).
I recently came back from a trek through Colombia and Ecuador. The suspension, and reinforced padding provided stupendous support and comfort. No matter if going up three hours on a hill or crossing rivers the bag's straps will keep the bag properly balanced.
Anyway, just get the bag.
Yes, I would recommend this product.
- "The Aether 60 is mostly awesome..."
....but the shoulder straps un-cinch themselves loose and need constant re-adjusting/tightening while hiking.
